Internal Medicine Residency Program

Welcome From Our Program Director

Robert Goldsteen, Program Director

I want to warmly thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine Residency at Grand Strand Medical Center. Our personable faculty provides you a personalized education within a comfortable learning environment whereby we share ideas and grow together. Our program brings you all the facets of a quality medical education experience. Since our program will be in its second year, you will have more one-on-one teaching from both the existing residents and the faculty.

Our diverse group of faculty come from all over the country and mirrors the community in Myrtle Beach, which is an amalgam of locals and people from around the nation.

The attributes that sets our program apart is our collegiality, approachability, and work ethic. You will find our doctors warm, respectful, approachable and with a keen interest in teaching. We have partnered with the University of South Carolina (an affiliated program) to fulfill our goal to train well-rounded residents who are proud to be able to perform as a specialist, hospitalist or ambulatory primary care doctor by the time they graduate. Our focus is not only superb board scores and high level placement in fellowships, but to develop well-balanced, creative physicians.

Our teachers understand the rigors of an academically focused program such as ours; we excel at personalizing your education and adapting to your needs. We will guide you toward your ultimate goals with one-on-one mentoring and doing our best to honor your preferences in electives and ambulatory care. Please take the time to explore our website and see our competitive salaries and packages.

Our program is the fourth Internal Medicine Residency in South Carolina and is a rich, community-based program supported by a dedicated faculty of superb teachers. We know that you have a choice and feel that by the time you consider Myrtle Beach and see the growth and job opportunities for internists here, the lifestyle aspects of our beach community and local culture will lead you to seriously consider us.

We warmly encourage you to inquire about our program, sample the flavor of South Carolina and observe what makes our program truly exceptional.

Welcome from Our Associate Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our Internal Medicine residency program at Grand Strand Medical Center! Having relocated to Myrtle Beach to help lead this program, I look forward to meeting you and sharing the opportunities we have to offer with you as you explore the next phase of your medical training. As someone new to the area myself, I can attest that the community here is warm, welcoming and enthusiastically supportive of the residency and all it has to offer.

The clinical exposure to both inpatient and outpatient medicine that we provide in our residency affords the opportunity to learn and develop your talents across a range of clinical environments. We have also worked hard to develop a rich and exciting didactic curriculum drawing upon content from evidence based medicine, cost conscious care, board review sessions, hands-on simulation sessions, journal clubs and the fundamentals of the business of medicine. Our residents are encouraged and supported to engage in scholarly work, ranging from local and regional presentations, to attending national conferences, to publishing scientific manuscripts.

We appreciate your interest in our program and look forward to welcoming you to Grand Strand.
