It has been a privilege to train at the University of South Carolina, Prisma Health—Upstate. The supporting and challenging environment of my residency training allowed me to engage in limitless opportunities from practicing excellent patient care to clinical research to health care policy to serving on the Board of Trustees for the state medical society. The commitment and dedication of our attendings inspired me to be a leader in medicine, to be closely involved in the education of our medical students and become a mentor. I am grateful for the skills provided me to be an outstanding Internist and for supporting my aspirations to become an academic Nephrologist. I am beyond excited for the initiation of fellowships that will further enhance the innovation and research of the Internal Medicine department and Prisma Health. Their addition will challenge the boundaries of medicine and strengthen the team dynamics.
