Why I chose Greenville: I enjoyed meeting the residents and faculty. Everyone seemed close, and I wanted a program with excellent hands-on training and strong camaraderie. I felt as though it would be a good fit for me. The faculty seem strongly invested in the residents and have good relationships. I kept hearing good things about the strong hospitalist training and critical care experience. It is a growing program that allows residents to take whatever career path they may choose.
Why I chose Greenville: I was lucky enough to land an away rotation in Greenville, doing my internal medicine acting internship at GHS. Several other Mercer students had previously matched at GHS and everyone raved about the hospital and their colleagues there. After spending one month in Greenville, I was sold. The city is beautiful and I loved the people that I met in the hospital. The program has a family feel to it, something that was very important to me and to my boyfriend, with whom I couples matched here. We did not hesitate to rank GHS #1 and we have never looked back!
Why I chose Greenville: I was looking for a place that had a close community feel. The program really takes into consideration what is good for the well-being of the residents. Greenville is a beautiful place and the program seemed to fit what I was looking for. I am originally from the south and wanted to stay in the southeast relatively close to home. All of these things were factors, however, in the end it just felt like this was where I was supposed to be.
Why I chose Greenville: Greenville was a program that stood out to me based on the positive attitude displayed by residents and the obvious satisfaction with GHS, as well as the program’s dedication to academics and learning. It is simply an added bonus that the program is nestled within a beautiful community that I am excited to explore throughout my residency.
Why I chose Greenville: Overall, a coveted residency program is one in which the role of a mentor is an essential aspect of the program’s training philosophy. By embodying this mentality, physician mentors serve as a constant compass, continuously calibrating residents to provide up-to-date, evidence-based, and patient-centered care. After completing my medical school clinical years at Greenville Heath System, I am confident that GHS is the ideal community-based program that will provide this type of residency training. Another unique feature of Greenville’s program is the protected ambulatory training time. As someone who is interested in practicing outpatient medicine, it is essential that my residency experience facilitates ambulatory education and skill development that does not feel fragmented or incomplete. I am very excited to become part of the Greenville Internal Medicine team.
Why I chose Greenville: When looking for an internship/residency position in Internal Medicine, I needed three criteria to be met. First, the program needed to be close to my home in Duluth, GA as I am very close with my parents and brother. Second, the program should be recognized for developing well-rounded hospitalists and also have a strong Sports Medicine fellowship available as I have interests in being both a hospitalist and/or Sports Medicine physician. Third, I wanted to work in a city that could continually garner the interests of my fiancée and me. With that said, after an enjoyable interview trail, Greenville Health System stood out from the rest. Greenville, SC is only about 100 miles from Duluth, GA, so I have the opportunity to visit my family at my pleasure. As for education, the program has a curriculum that is well-balanced with respect to inpatient and outpatient experiences for the development of comprehensive hospitalists. In addition, in collaboration Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, the Sports Medicine fellowship at GHS is one of the largest certified athletic training networks in the nation. As such, I would be able to enjoy a curriculum at GHS that will train me to be the well-rounded hospitalist along with having the opportunity to gain further knowledge in the field of Sports Medicine via one of the country’s best Sports Medicine fellowships. Finally, the city of Greenville, SC has consistently been ranked as one of the most exciting and upcoming cities in the nation for the past couple of years. There are many things to keep me and my fiancée occupied from outdoor events to enjoying a night out in the town. With that said, I decided that GHS was the best fit for me, and I am blessed with the opportunity to be working for such a prestigious program.
Why I chose Greenville: I chose the Greenville Internal Medicine Residency Program because of how nice everyone was when I came for my interview. Everyone I met, from the nursing staff while touring the hospital, the residents at the pre-interview dinner, to the staff physicians I interviewed with, had such a friendly demeanor that it was impossible not to feel welcome at Greenville Health System. I knew that I wanted to be a part of an institution that delivered high quality care with the kind of atmosphere I experienced myself while I was at GHS. And having all of that set against the backdrop of a town as pretty as Greenville, South Carolina doesn’t hurt either!
Why I chose Greenville: I chose Greenville because I was instantly impressed with the people I met and the camaraderie they displayed, from faculty to residents to support staff. In addition the program appealed to me because of its dedication to learning and willingness to adapt to the evolving field of medicine.
Why I chose Greenville: When I arrived to GHS for my interview, I was immediately welcomed to not just a program but a family. I was treated as if I were already in the family throughout the entire interview process. You could see how well everyone was getting along, the attendings’ enthusiasm to teach, and how each of the residents willingly helped each other with all patients. I love that GHS offers a very diverse patient load, along with many opportunities for independent learning. GHS was my first choice for residency and I know I could not be any happier anywhere else. I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn medicine, to provide excellent patient care, and to continue growing as a physician under the guidance of all the faculty members at GHS. My wife and I are looking forward to being closer to home and exploring all of Greenville as it will be our new home. Plus, no one can go wrong with free Chik-fil-a and other amazing benefits at GHS.
Why I chose Greenville: As I began my search, there were only a few criteria that I knew I wanted: a smaller community-based program with a university affiliation in either the Carolinas or California. It was the interview at Greenville that really swayed my decision. From the preceding night’s dinner to chatting with another applicant from Ohio applying to the ob/gyn program, I began to see myself pursuing a successful and rewarding career at GHS. Dr. Fuller’s presentation was paramount –his words emphasized the dedication of the program, not only to the residents as a whole, but to each of their individual needs. The Internal Medicine program investigates the learning styles of each member of the incoming class to implement improved methods of teaching. Having come from a medical program that taught in group, case-based learning instead of lectures, I appreciate this non-traditional approach. The residents were exceedingly welcoming and down to earth. After discussing the program with them, I knew it was a good fit. Interestingly, it was a perfect way to celebrate my birthday, which happened to be my interview day! GHS is growing and expanding, and the IM program has an exciting and innovative future ahead with considerable opportunity. I am eager to be part of it! Greenville is also a beautiful, up and coming city with a great deal to offer, along with being home to my favorite relatives. GHS not only checked all the boxes, but also along with the Greenville area, provides the perfect climate for advanced learning, professional growth and a chance to form strong interpersonal relationships.
Why I chose Greenville: Besides being tired of shoveling snow, I was drawn to the GHS program because it has all of the benefits of a relatively smaller sized program, without sacrificing any academic rigor or opportunities. The camaraderie between residents is genuine, and attendings know residents by name. This fosters such a great environment for learning and patient care, and will help mold me into a well-rounded physician. The opportunities in this growing healthcare community are endless. Greenville is also a beautiful city to live in with so many amazing outdoor activities a short drive away.
Why I chose Greenville: There were many things that lead me to choose to do my residency training at GHS. I went to medical school nearby, in Spartanburg, so I was familiar with Greenville, and knew how great of a place it would be to live. But it was not until I did an audition rotation at GHS, that I knew that I wanted to do my residency training in Greenville. During the four weeks I spent with one of the inpatient medicine services, I saw first hand the experience I would get as a resident at GHS. I was extremely impressed by the knowledge and skills of the upper level residents, and admired the hard work the interns put in on a daily basis. I realized that if I were to train at GHS I would be molded into the physician that I have always strived to become.
