Orientation for third-year medical students from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Florence Campus was held on July 5, at McLeod Regional Medical Center. These students will spend their third- and fourth-year of medical school completing their clinical rotations in Florence.

The students’ orientation day included IT training and a tour of the rotation sites with McLeod Family Residency Program Chief Residents, Dr. Carmen Cribb and Dr. Rhonda Wallace. Working in conjunction with the residents and attending physicians of the McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program, the students gain the knowledge base and clinical skills necessary to provide quality health care as a primary care physician.

The Florence campus, founded in 2015 to help address the shortage of primary care providers in rural and underserved areas of the state, allows third- and fourth-year medical students to complete their clinical rotations at the Luther F. Carter Center for Health Sciences Complex, McLeod Regional Medical Center and Carolinas Hospital System.
