Residents are selected at the postgraduate year-one level through the National Resident Matching Program. Applications will be accepted only through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application System) with a December 1st deadline. Selected applicants will be asked to visit Greenville Health System (GHS) for an interview. Click here to view a sample resident employment contract.

International applicants must be ECFMG certified and current. We sponsor J-1 visas only. Applicants must have some clinical experience in the U.S. within the past year: research and /or observerships do not qualify as clinical experience. Applicants must have completed medical school within the past three years and must have passed boards on the first attempt with a score of 200 or above on both Parts 1 & 2 (not combined score). For osteopathic medical school applicants, we require a COMLEX score of 500 or above. We require three letters of recommendations with at least one from a physician practicing in the U.S. We do not fill positions outside of the NRMP match. Meeting the above criteria does not guarantee that an interview will be offered.
