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.
McLeod is committed to providing quality healthcare throughout Northeastern South Carolina and Southeastern North Carolina. This 18-county service area includes several rural areas with many having poor access to primary care. Increasing the number of primary care physicians practicing Family Medicine in rural communities improves access to care which will in turn improve health outcomes. To help fill this need, McLeod has the McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency program which is located in two sites- Cheraw SC and Manning SC.READ MORE
The focus of our residency is to train physicians to practice full-scope family medicine so they can practice anywhere. Our residents have the opportunity to care for patients across many settings including outpatient, inpatient, ICU, and nursing home while practicing in resource-limited areas. This translates to residents taking full responsibility for their patients including performing procedures such as central lines, EGD, and colonoscopies.
In addition, being part of a community is core to rural medicine. Residents learn how to improve the health outcomes of their communities by participating in outreach activities and quality improvement projects. Our residents have the opportunity to experience the joy of rural medicine that comes from the special patient-physician bond unique to small communities. We strive for the same sense of community within the program as well. At McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency, residents experience a robust education in a supportive family environment.
