Thank you for your interest in our Graduate Medical Education Anesthesiology Residency program. We are an ACGME accredited four-year categorical program; located in the city of Myrtle Beach, part of HCA Healthcare's Graduate Medical Education (GME) enterprise.
Our program offers the best of three worlds.

First, a community-based training where system-based practice is an everyday reality, not a distant concept. Second, fellowship trained, experienced faculty providing real-life, practice-based learning and improvement opportunities on a daily, case-by-case basis. Third, HCA GME, through its national scale, offers rich opportunities for clinical research, access to online knowledge resources, expert speakers and consultants, and an opportunity for a long professional career following graduate training.

Grand Strand Medical Center is a state-of-art facility, and has been named among America's 100 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades. It has also been recognized as a 5-star recipient in more than ten categories for 2022, including Heart Failure, Spinal Fusion, Stroke care, and Neurosurgery.

Program Director - Dr. Jon Halling

As program director, I bring 18 years of combined research, clinical, education, and administrative experience. I received my MD degree from St. Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. I completed a year of surgery residency at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, Virginia. This was followed by an anesthesia residency at the Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, Louisiana, where I participated in the rebuilding of New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. After anesthesiology residency, I pursued a Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology Fellowship at Duke University. I moved to Arizona and began a new Cardiothoracic surgery program in Lake Havasu City. I then moved to Las Vegas, Nevada and was one of the founding faculty in the Sunrise GME Anesthesiology program, having been with the program since the beginning. I recently relocated to Grand Strand Medical Center to participate in making the program one of the finest training programs in the Southeastern U.S. I am also in the process of obtaining an MBA from the Harbert College of Business at Auburn University.
