Family Medicine Resident Scholarship Symposium

The South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium is held each year in conjunction with the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians (SCAPF) 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.

2020 Resident Scholarship Symposium

Each year we are proud to host the South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium in partnership with the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians (SCAFP). Unfortunately, this year we were unable to host the event in person at the SCAFP’s Summer Break Away and Annual Assembly due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

However, we still want to feature the work that family medicine residents across South Carolina had been working on leading up to the conference. Please click the button below to read abstracts for residents’ original research or quality improvement initiatives that would have been presented at the 2020 Resident Scholarship Symposium. Join us in recognizing the outstanding efforts of these future leaders in family medicine.
