"I chose Spartanburg Regional for my residency training because of its excellent educational resources that complement its unique family-oriented culture. Apart from many other programs, the app Ii cant evaluation process was geared towards discovering residents that would equally support their patients and fellow colleagues. These values were also reflected by the attending physicians that emphasized the role of personalized educational instruction and growth while also providing residents with the flexibility to participate within family and social opportunities. The incredible benefits also included access to the Carolina Country Club and Spartanburg Athletic Club. After experiencing SRHS first-hand, the Sparkle City TY Program fulfilled its long-standing reputation as one of the best in the country."

"I am originally from Greenville, SC and wanted to stay in the southeast for residency. The Spartanburg Regional Transitional Year program has a reputation for being one of the best in the country and being just down the road from Greenville seemed like a perfect opportunity. If there was any question where I wanted to go for my intern year the interview day put those questions to rest. Faculty, residents and staff were all very warm and inviting. The current residents couldn’t have been happier with their decision and had nothing but positive things to say about their experience. The benefits offered are second to none. I am looking forward to a great year in Spartanburg."
