Prisma Health–Upstate/University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville Psychiatry Residency Program - Greer

We are a new longitudinal Psychiatry program which welcomed our first class in July 2020. We will be accepting new applications beginning in September.

Message from the Director

I am delighted to introduce you to a new psychiatry residency training program in the foothills (piedmont) of South Carolina. As Greenville’s close neighbor, Greer is recognized as a highly desirable destination for young professionals and their families. What follows on this website is information that you will find helpful for decision-making. I would underscore the distinctives of this program as being inquiry-based, community-oriented, spiritually-inclined, and collaborative with other disciplines and specialties. Nothing will do more to reduce stigma than providing mental health care through integration with other medical specialties. We teach that evidence-based practice is where research, clinical experience, and patient preference intersect. Our faculty will strive to assist your search, encourage faith, and understand relationship. Importantly, once you complete training there will be myriad employment opportunities so that you may remain in this congenial place as our colleagues and friends. I hope to see you soon!
