Why I Chose Greenville: When I arrived in Greenville for my interview, I was warmly greeted by an Uber driver. Because it was my first time here, he chatted about the history of the city and how it has changed a lot in the past five years. He even drove the scenic way so I could see downtown, and he excitedly listed off all sorts of activities that take place in Greenville. I wondered if everyone in the city was this nice or if it was just him. However, every single person from residents to staff were warm and welcoming! After matching during this pandemic, the residents have gone above and beyond to help us have a successful transition to residency. For instance, they put together a guide on different neighborhoods and costs so that we could make an informed decision on where to live. They even offered to check out places for us. I am very lucky to become part of this city and hospital community because I know that I am joining good-hearted people who will help me become a phenomenal physician.
