  • All residents rotate and provide care at the Anderson Free Clinic throughout their time in the residency, developing skills in dealing with patient concerns in resource-limited environments. All residents take part each year in providing Special Olympics physicals and pre-participation sports physicals for our county’s high school and collegiate athletes. During Community Medicine, our residents work with teaching local Fifth Graders in the AnMed DocLink program that provides student education on healthy living habits and safety issues, including seat belt and bike helmet use.  Local churches often sponsor health fairs and residents volunteer at these events to provide cholesterol screening and counseling, blood pressure measurement and education, and even flu shots.

    Beyond these parts of the curriculum, individual residents become involved with service organizations that fit their interests.  We have several residents who are the sideline physicians, with our Sports Medicine faculty, at local high schools. Other residents have become the local physician for the Haven of Rest local men’s or women’s center, or even worked with the Salvation Army shelter to provide immunizations during flu season.  If there’s an underserved group that a resident wants to reach out and help, we’ll work on facilitating this within our community.

Our doctors, clinical caregivers and support staff work together to support each other and achieve optimal outcomes for our patients. We chat with each other in the halls. We share meals in the cafeteria. And we help each other be the best we can be. Belonging to a tight-knit, supportive community makes it easy to see how the work we do every day here helps better the lives of the patients we serve and the employees who serve them.
  2. Enjoying a Great Quality of Life. Housing costs in Anderson and the surrounding areas are significantly lower than the national average, which means your paycheck goes a lot farther. We enjoy, on average, 221 sunny days a year and a very comfortable temperate climate. And typical morning commutes come with minimal traffic, giving you more time to smile and enjoy the things you like to do.
  3. Having Great Benefits. AnMed offers amazing benefits that are affordable and flexible enough to meet the unique needs of our families and most benefits are part-time eligible!
  4. Working Here is a pleasure (really).  We've been recognized as a great place to work in Anderson year after year and our people couldn't agree more. Clearly, we're a great place to work!

Best parts of the program were undoubtedly the relationships made. I have kept in touch with many of my co-residents, and enjoyed the time we spent together.
