Family Medicine Residency Programs
Graduate Medical Education
In order to alleviate the shortage and maldistribution of physicians in our state, the South Carolina AHEC sponsors graduate medical education residency training programs throughout South Carolina. South Carolina AHEC’s affiliated residency training programs have approximately 165 physicians completing their training each year. Residents in graduate medical education (GME) have grown in number from 62 in 1972 to 507, 60% of whom are residents in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics. Primary care residency programs are based in eight communities across our state and include sites for emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, combined internal medicine/pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, and pediatrics. Additional residencies are offered in orthopedics, psychiatry, and surgery.
