Why Spartanburg Regional? Spartanburg Regional offers top notch education in a supportive environment. The people in this program are genuine and actually care about you and your family. This sets you up to be a great physician and an even better person. The city itself is a hidden gem with everything you need with no big commute. Its close proximity to NC mountains and SC beaches make for an easy weekend trip too. I also wanted to be at a place where I would be welcomed back after residency training. Spartanburg Regional was a no-brainer, and I would make the same decision 10x over!

Why Spartanburg Regional? After meeting the residents and interacting with the faculty at other transitional year programs in the southeast, I realized that Spartanburg Regional had the most familial feel. The people here are genuinely invested in each other's well-being/education and it shows. The schedule allows for great flexibility in choosing electives while still providing robust training in inpatient medicine. Spartanburg itself has plenty of wonderful food options and has a small-town charm that can't be beat.

Why Spartanburg Regional? I chose Spartanburg Regional because of the welcoming learning environment, the supportive faculty, and the well-rounded curriculum. This program provides the flexibility to rotate in a wide variety of specialties that will help prepare me for my future advanced program in diagnostic radiology. The city of Spartanburg is also an amazing place to live with close proximity to both the Appalachian mountains and the coast.
