Why MUSC: I chose MUSC because of the people. On interview day, every person I met from administrative staff to residents to program directors had a warm, welcoming, and contagious energy. It was obvious through the innate enthusiasm observed through my interactions with everyone that this would be a program where I would love going into work everyday – and this has held true! MUSC is first and foremost a "human-forward" culture only made that much better with the added bonus of a large academic center and a charming coastal city.

Why MUSC: Choosing MUSC was a no-brainer for me. It’s a beautiful hospital in a beautiful city. My sister was lucky enough to have moved here 4 years ago, and I have visited the city ever since. MUSC Pediatrics seemed like such a friendly and exceptional program on my interview day, and so far residency has proved that to be accurate. Also, Charleston is such a great city, with awesome beaches, delicious food, and wonderful people. I chose MUSC for its friendliness, for family, and for the fun city.

Why MUSC: I had a few priorities when I was looking at residency programs. As my home program, I knew MUSC was a mid-size academic program (check) located in a beautiful city with all sorts of opportunities to support a balanced life outside of work (check) with dynamic program leadership (check), strong training in my areas of interest (check), and a great family of residents with diverse passions (check). I still put in a lot of hours on the trail, but the final decision to stay home was easy!

Why MUSC: After completing my sub-i here I found myself comparing every other program to MUSC, and no other program compared. All of the attendings were not only willing but seemed excited to teach. The residents had such strong bonds and genuinely wanted to be around each other. I also felt that I saw the widest spectrum of pediatric diseases while I was here. Being in a great city close to the beach didn't hurt either.
