Dr. Mark Pittman is a native of SC, and he and his family have been in Greenville since 2016. Mark and his wife Katie have three daughters, not to forget a dog and cat. If Mark's not at work, there’s a good chance you’ll find him outside with his kids, plants, or exercising!
Originally from Aiken, SC, Mark went to Furman for undergrad and then UVA for medical school. Before moving to Greenville, Mark spent 5 years in the DC area attending residency where he was chief resident, working at a community ED in Baltimore, and serving as the EM clerkship director at Georgetown. Here in Greenville, Mark loves that he can work at an academic center and still have shifts in a community ED.
Clinically, Mark loves pediatrics and the airway. Academically, he has a passion for resident and medical student education. In addition to being an Assistant Program Director for our residency and an IPM instructor, he also teaches a MayX course at Furman University. Since completing residency, Mark's completed the ACEP Teaching Fellowship, become a fellow of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine, and started medical student wilderness medicine electives at Georgetown and here in Greenville.
