Residency Training in South Carolina
South Carolina is home to sixteen (16) family medicine residency training programs, each located in a different part of the state. Each offers it own unique experience, including practice environment, lifestyle and community.
The mission of the Family Medicine Residency Program at Aiken Regional is to train competent, compassionate and conscientious physicians in the full scope of family medicine practice. The program includes training that will have a strong emphasis on professionalism, teamwork and evidence-based practice; residents will receive their training in a nurturing environment that focuses on well-being and all-around development as a family medicine physician. Upon conclusion of training, residents will have the knowledge and experience needed to bridge the gaps in care wherever they choose to practice, whether that’s within Aiken County and the surrounding areas or other parts of the state or country. Should graduates choose to practice in other areas of the state or country, their practice will be a reflection of the quality of education within our program and values encouraged in our setting.

McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency Program
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.
A Message from Our Program Director
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.
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.
