Chief Residents' Welcome Message

Chief Residents 2020 to 2021
L-R: Cameron Wilhoit, M.D., Laurel Branch, M.D., Jessica English, M.D., Nishant Trivedi, M.D.

Thank you for visiting our website.  We hope you find it informative; please feel free to contact us directly if you have additional questions. Over the past three years, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has earned a special place in our hearts. During your search for a residency program, it is important to find a place that matches both your personal and career goals. We invite you to explore the Department of Medicine, MUSC, and Charleston to see if we are the best fit for you!

Our residency program is based on a strong foundation of general internal medicine with ample exposure to subspecialty training. While rotating at three different hospitals, you will care for a wide spectrum of disease processes in a socioeconomically diverse population. MUSC’s main hospital, Ashley River Tower, and the Ralph H. Johnson VA are all conveniently located within a three-block radius. Residents gain early access to personal career guidance and research opportunities. In the inpatient and outpatient settings, we work directly with experts and innovators in their respective fields. Our outpatient training includes the University Internal Medicine clinic, which provides primary care to a diverse and complex patient population, in addition to subspecialty clinic exposures tailored to your interest. Founded in 2017, a longitudinal telehealth curriculum has been integrated into the outpatient experience to better serve our community. 

Take one look out of the hospital windows, and you will see why we love Charleston! Nestled between the Ashley and Cooper rivers, Charleston offers year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches, numerous outdoor activities, and world-class restaurants in one of the nation’s oldest cities.

We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful city and to have trained at a world class academic center with a personal feel. Our hope is that this small snapshot has shown you some of the reasons we love MUSC. We welcome you to explore our website for a more complete view of our program, particularly the people who make it special.

We look forward to meeting you,

Laurel Branch, M.D.
