Why I chose Greenville:  I chose Greenville over other programs for a variety of reasons!  I enjoyed its location immensely, which is close to the mountains and all the beauty the forests around Greenville, Hendersonville, and Asheville have to offer.   I also appreciated the elective scheduling, call scheduling, benefits, and size of the program.   Additionally, the hospital itself is easily accessible with many amenities available to its staff!  On my interview day I distinctly remember noticing the residents being happy, and at the social the night before they all seemed very appreciative of the support they received from the higher ups. The Program Director, Dr. Nanette Dendy, was very friendly and seemed to enjoy her work.

On a side note, my wife also appreciated the city of Greenville. It has a vibrant downtown and many activities going on nearly every weekend.  Additionally, there are several large corporations in the area so the economy can sustain jobs for significant others.
