Greenville Health System (GHS) is one of the Southeast’s leading healthcare providers, nationally recognized for advanced technology, innovative research, and teaching excellence. The system's five campuses include a Level I trauma center, four acute care hospitals (including a short-stay surgical hospital), a psychiatric hospital, a rehabilitation hospital, a longterm acute care hospital, and numerous outpatient facilities.
GHS is a community-university model. Having grown over its 100 years from a single community hospital to a comprehensive, integrated delivery system comprised of four acute care hospitals and 12 specialty healthcare facilities, GHS is focused on high-volume, high-quality patient care enhanced by education and research. Because of its history, GHS is the ideal “community-university” model of resident education to give you hands-on patient care experience augmented by the advantages of our role as an academic medical center.

Residency and fellowship programs in:
Greenville Health System/University of South Carolina Residency Programs in the GHS Division for Academic Services offer primary care experience as well as specialty and sub-specialty rotations found in university programs. Residents receive a broad-based education–with a personal touch from attending faculty and community physicians. While volume, technology, professional expertise, and research are important, personal care and customer service are emphasized.
In mentoring residents, we strive to create an appropriate balance between providing supervision and granting independence in patient care. We view our residents as practicing physicians and, consequently, expect them to be committed both to providing the best of care and to learning all they can.
GHS is affiliated with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine (USCSOM). Currently, 30 medical students from USCSOM spend their entire third and fourth years of medical school at GHS, which serves as a clinical medical campus for the university. Our fully accredited residency programs currently include 175 residents in eight programs.
