Why I chose Greenville:  During my interview at this program, the people and location stood out right from the start. There is a culture of camaraderie that is apparent in the staff and a warmth in the people that you interact with-which reminds me of my hometown. The location was a bonus. I am used to living in big cities. But after seeing Greer for its small-town charm, while having access to the beautiful downtown of Greenville, it made me realize that this would be a great place to train in while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Not to mention Greenville’s great food scene and the unlimited outdoors surrounding it offers. It is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new program and grow alongside it all the while learning under its exceptional faculty. It is also wonderful to see that the faculty and staff actively advocate for their residents’ wellbeing and success. They make the difference by going above and beyond to not only support our professional lives but also our personal lives. When I’m not at the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, trying new food, exploring the outdoors/ hiking, Piloxing and watching Netflix. I look forward to training in an institution that allows me to have good exposure to interesting pathology as well allowing me to treat my patients with the utmost compassion.
