Connecting Physicians to Family Medicine Training

About the Program

To address the maldistribution of physicians in our state, South Carolina AHEC collaborates with all of the family medicine residency programs in South Carolina to enhance recruitment for family medicine, facilitate high-quality resident training and encourage collaboration amongst programs. Details about each program are available on their fact sheets and via their websites, which are listed in the section below.

South Carolina AHEC, in partnership with the South Carolina Family Medicine Residency Programs and the SC Academy of Family Physicians, is pleased to host South Carolina Family Medicine Interest Day and the South Carolina Family Medicine Resident Symposium.

Enhanced rural financial incentives (PDF) are available to residents in South Carolina Family Medicine Residency Programs through the South Carolina AHEC Rural Incentive Grant Program.

Family Medicine Interest Day

Family Medicine Interest Day is designed to promote the specialty of family medicine as a career option and to recruit medical students into South Carolina's family medicine residency training programs. Medical students have the opportunity to attend workshops and to network with family medicine residency training program faculty members and their residents. Students from medical schools in South Carolina and across the southeast are invited to attend. The event is a joint venture between the South Carolina AHEC, the South Carolina Family Medicine Residency Training Programs, and the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians.

To find out more information about Family Medicine Interest Day, please contact Kristin Cochran at cochrak@musc.edu.

Resident Scholarship Symposium

The South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium is held each year in conjunction with the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians (SCAFP) annual meeting, usually during the month of June. The symposium provides Family Medicine residents from across the state the opportunity to showcase their quality improvement and research projects through scholarly presentations and poster sessions. Residents and faculty participate in the SCAFP sponsored luncheon, during which awards and cash prizes are presented to winners from each presentation category. Residents are also able to participate in conference and networking events with other family physicians from throughout South Carolina. During the symposium, the upcoming chief residents from each program also participate in a seminar to learn about and develop leadership and other skills.
