Sam Orchard, MD

I did my undergraduate at Utah State University a short trip north of where I grew up. I met my wife, Shae, while we were in school there and we have since had two kids - Charlie and Brixen. I stayed close to home for medical school at the University of Utah. 


Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah

Why Prisma EM? I did not have a connection to Greenville, Prisma or even SC until I was mountain biking with a radiologist from around Asheville in the Salt Lake mountains. He told me I needed to check out the riding in this area of the country which led me to look into Greenville and Prisma for my away rotation. During that rotation, I quickly fell in love not only with the mountain biking and city, but with the amazing Prisma EM program, people and culture. Even as a visiting student, I felt supported and guided by great mentors that included residents and attendings who I am stoked to start working with again. 

What do you enjoy on your free time? In my free time, I enjoy all things sports and outdoors including mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, skiing, basketball and football. 

Favorite Movie: Rudy (love rooting for the little guy)

Interesting fact: When I was 12, I was so tiny my insurance company tried to cancel my insurance because they thought I was a dwarf. Probably why I like the movie Rudy so much.
