3rd Year Class Interests

When not at work, our class often explores the culinary scene in Charleston, one of the best in the Southeast. We also frequent the fantastic beaches at nearby Folly Beach and Sullivan's Island. We are supportive of our college football teams, with notable allegiances to UGA, Clemson, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Florida, and Florida State. Dr. Chase Mitchell enjoys scuba diving and fly fishing. Many of their spouses work in healthcare, including several married to MUSC employees.

Second Year Class Interests

Some are not new to Charleston, having completed their clinical year here. This makes them a great resource for their classmates on the ‘what to do in Charleston’. Charlotte Wallace is a huge Clemson fan and enjoys playing tennis. Kyle Freeman also enjoys tennis and golf. Golf is a great hobby since there are many great courses in the area. Here’s to a great 2nd year of residency.

First Year Class Interests

The first year class has made a conscious effort to improve work-life-balance. When we are not focusing on work, we center our attention on our personal interests, which are playing tennis and golf, going to the beach, watching football and Bravo TV Network (Real Housewives), eating out, painting, shopping, exercising, and traveling. Going back to football, we have some alumni that continue to have loyalty to their college teams, such as the University of Florida, University of Kentucky, UGA, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Duke. Also, like the fourth year class, every Friday we meet up after work for happy hour at Fuel. It is now known as Fuel Friday. Lastly, we have an elected social chair who plans weekly activities for our class to partake in.
