During the first week for the McLeod Family Medicine Residency Class of 2024, meet and greet events were held at McLeod Health Cheraw, McLeod Health Clarendon and McLeod Regional Medical Center as an opportunity for the new residents to meet members of administration, medical staff and directors of the hospital.
The McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program is designed to train physicians in an effort to increase the availability of family medicine physicians for patients in the 18-county region McLeod Health serves. After graduating from medical school, physicians who join McLeod for their residency, receive a rigorous three years of training to prepare for their own future practice.
Since its inception in 1980, there have been more than 250 graduates of the McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program with 60 percent of them staying in South Carolina and in the Pee Dee Region.
