The mission of McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency Program is to graduate skilled physicians who are well-rounded and able to understand and treat the unique conditions of patients within the rural and under served areas.
Rural Family Medicine has historically been vital to the medical care of the residents of South Carolina and many other states. McLeod Health now offers a unique training opportunity: McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency. This newly- accredited program offers the opportunity to train in one of two rural sites: Cheraw, SC and Manning, SC.READ MORE
These sites are in small rural communities co-located with McLeod’s rural hospitals: McLeod Health Cheraw and McLeod Health Clarendon. Some of the rotations, especially in the first year, will occur in Florence at McLeod Regional Medical Center, which provides a basis of medical knowledge to support the residents’ training in the rural areas. Most rotations in the last two years of training will be spent in the residents’ designated home sites either in the hospital or alongside the specialists. Residents will care for their own patient panel in the rural area during all three years. They can also participate in outreach programs within their communities. This will provide residents with a unique and exciting experience that prepares them to practice family medicine in a rural setting.
