About Avery Buchholz
Why did you choose to train at MUSC?
MUSC is known for having a great operative experience. Residents are in the OR early in their training and do a large volume of cases throughout. This becomes evident as you travel to conferences and speak with residents from other institutions. You will meet your ACGME core requirements way before your chief years and residents graduate with confidence in every aspect of neurosurgery. In addition, the resident attending relationship at MUSC is very cordial and friendly. This makes the OR a fun place to be and enjoyable place to train.
What do you enjoy the most about your residency program?
We work in a friendly environment where residents are encouraged to follow their interests, develop projects, and tailor their education and operative experience to their own needs. We have endless resources afforded to us and the full support of the faculty. This made residency enjoyable. More recently La Sierra has become a favorite among residents. It has changed our culture to one that values overall well-being, physical health and team work. The importance of this cannot be overstated.
When I’m not at work you can find me …
Enjoying the social scene downtown, a good steak a Hall's Chophouse, spending time on the water, and shooting sports. Charleston offers endless opportunities for both recreation and relaxation.
