South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium

The annual South Carolina AHEC Resident Scholarship Symposium was held in conjunction with the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians’ (SCAFP) annual meeting in Hilton Head Island on June 12 and 13.  On June 12, a Chief Residents’ Seminar was held for physicians who will be chief residents during the 2016-2017 academic year.  That night the SCAFP and the South Carolina AHEC Family Medicine Residency Program directors sponsored a wine and cheese reception and poster session for residents, members of the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians, and their families.  

Authors of 16 abstracts also presented scholarly presentations on research and quality improvement projects. The residents’ presentations were well attended by SCAFP members who asked residents thought provoking questions and discussed how these projects translate into practice.  The South Carolina AHEC would like to thank those who served as moderators, judges and presentation scorers: Dr. Lisa Mims (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine), served as chair and moderator of the Resident Scholarship Symposium and Dr. Alec DeCastro (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine) assisted as a moderator. Judges were Dr. Patricia Bouknight (Spartanburg Regional Family Medicine); Dr. Chuck Carter (Palmetto Health Family Medicine); and Dr. Gerard Jebaily (McLeod Family Medicine). Dr. Marty Player (Trident/MUSC Family Medicine), assisted with the symposium presentations and scoring. 

A SCAFP-sponsored luncheon provided residents and SCAFP members with another opportunity to interact. During the luncheon, awards and cash prizes were presented to the following symposium winners:
