Favorite thing about your MUSC residency experience: The leadership at MUSC Orthopaedics has created an excellent culture within the residency program. As a result, residents are quick to help each other at work and commonly hang out during free time outside of the hospital. Faculty demand excellence both clinically and surgically, but in a positive and constructive environment.

Favorite thing about your MUSC residency experience: The people! After completing my rotation as a visiting medical student, I realized that in addition to working hard and learning a lot, I had also laughed more in that month than on any other rotation. The residents, attendings and nurses at MUSC make the hard work enjoyable.
