2015 South Carolina Family Medicine Residency Program Recruiting Trip to Kansas City

Denise D. Corriher, Residency Coordinator, McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program, Florence, South Carolina, recounts this year’s Kansas City Conference
  
The annual American Academy of Family Physicians’ National Conference for students and residents was held on July 30-August 1, in Kansas City, Missouri. Residents, faculty and staff from each of the eight South Carolina family medicine residency training programs attended. The conference affords medical students an opportunity to learn more about family medicine residency programs, attend educational sessions, and participate in several hands-on learning opportunities. Areas of focus included transitioning into practice, musculoskeletal clinics, and procedural skills courses.   

Throughout the conference, all eight of South Carolina’s family medicine residency programs stayed busy at the recruiting booth, meeting medical students and explaining the benefits of completing residency training in South Carolina. This year approximately 150 medical students from around the country visited the booth and were eager to learn more about South Carolina and our outstanding residency programs.

This year’s conference was a success for each of South Carolina’s family medicine residency programs and for the residents and students who attended.  Special thanks to Kristin Cochran, Director of Recruitment and Retention and Student Programs for the South Carolina AHEC and Jeannie Lenberg, Spartanburg Family Medicine Residency Program Coordinator, for their help in the planning and organization of this year’s event!
