Rebecca S. Seignious Family Medicine Interest Day

The 28th Annual Rebecca S. Seignious Family Medicine Interest Day was held on August 26 at the Embassy Suites in Columbia. This event was sponsored by the statewide family practice residency directors, the South Carolina AHEC and the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians.
With 103 medical students from 12 medical schools were in attendance, Family Medicine Interest Day serves to stimulate interest and enthusiasm in the field of Family Medicine. The students began the day at a luncheon where they networked with members of the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians, faculty and residents from South Carolina’s Family Medicine residency programs.
After lunch, each student attended four hands-on workshops conducted by faculty and residents from South Carolina AHEC’s Family Medicine residency training programs. The hands-on workshops included:
  • GYN Procedures (IUD Insertion, Endometrial Biopsy, and Colposcopy) - Anderson
  • Joint Injections - Charleston
  • Point of Care Ultrasound in Family Medicine - Columbia
  • Upper Endoscopy and Colonoscopy by the Family Physician and Bedside Ultrasound - Florence
  • Basic Suturing Techniques - Greenville
  • Sports Medicine Ultrasound - Greenwood
  • Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment/Physical Medicine - Spartanburg
That evening students attended a recruitment fair/reception and visited booths staffed by the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians, nine South Carolina Family Medicine residency programs and six out-of-state Family Medicine residency programs.
