Why MUSC: I chose MUSC because I knew that I would get a fantastic education while working alongside genuinely kind and supportive people. I felt so welcomed by all the faculty and residents I encountered on interview day and was impressed with the robust curriculum, including exposure to all the pediatric specialties and opportunities for advocacy. I also loved the idea of living in Charleston, surrounded by beaches, beautiful scenery, and an abundance of food to try!

Why MUSC: I chose MUSC from the gut feeling I got on my interview day. Even in a virtual setting, I could feel the camaraderie between the residents and faculty, as well as the commitment to giving residents the best possible training, and that feeling has only grown during the start of my intern year. MUSC has opportunities in so many different subspecialties and areas of pediatrics that even though I'm not sure what direction I want my career to take, I know that any door is open to me here. Also, living in a beautiful city by the ocean is a HUGE plus!

Everyone I met was so friendly and genuine, and I felt I would receive the best support and training here. It is the perfect size program that I was looking for, and the hospital is beautiful. Also, it's in Charleston, which is one of my favorite cities. The food and the beach are the best!

Why MUSC: I chose MUSC because of the wonderful people I met on interview day. Everyone I spoke with, from faculty to residents to program leadership, were so enthusiastic and friendly. It was the very family-like, supportive culture that I was looking for in a program. Additionally, I was drawn to the high level of skilled training I would receive at MUSC, along with special curricular highlights including the global health track. The opportunity to live in the beautiful city of Charleston is a huge perk too!

Why MUSC: I chose MUSC first and foremost because of the people and the positive feeling I got during my interview. I knew it was a place that I would be pushed to learn and grow while also being supported. The curriculum, including academic half days and elective/subspecialty opportunities beginning as an intern, was also a huge factor that drew me in. On top of all the amazing aspects of the program itself, Charleston is such an incredible city with so many beaches, parks, and restaurants as well as abundant sunshine!
