Practice Sites

Residents will practice at the following locations: 

  • AnMed Medical Center 
  • AnMed Women's and Children's Hospital
  • AnMed Primary Care – Family Medicine Residency

Patient Population

Our population reflects the needs of Anderson, a diverse community in Upstate South Carolina. Approximately 24 percent of ambulatory visits are from patients under 16, and 28 percent are from those older than 60. We treat many receptive and challenging patients. Our goal is to help you learn the necessary skills to provide ambulatory and inpatient care to patients of all ages.

Rotation Structure

AnMed rotations are in 13 four-week blocks per year. In the first year, there are 7.5 blocks of inpatient rotations (pediatrics, obstetrics and inpatient medicine), with continuity clinic occurring one half-day per week in all blocks. 

By the third year, there are three blocks of inpatient rotations (mainly adult medicine) with three to five half-days of ambulatory continuity clinic per week on the other blocks. This matches the general focus of most graduates toward ambulatory care after graduation, with the capability to continue to practice hospital medicine, if desired.

Throughout the residency, we host weekly meetings that cover procedural techniques. We also have team-based conferences on inpatient and outpatient medical care, including MAT (medication assisted treatment) and behavioral medicine.
