School of Medicine Columbia

Florence Regional Campus

Our small classes give you individualized instruction and more opportunities for hands-on experience during your clinical rotations. It's all part of our goal to train the best primary care physicians and address the shortage of primary care providers in rural and underserved areas of South Carolina.

The Florence Regional Campus opportunity is available to third and fourth year medical students who are completing their clinical rotations. 


A Focus on Primary Care

Working in conjunction with the resident and attending physicians at the McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program, you will gain the knowledge base and clinical skills necessary to provide quality health care as a primary care physician with an emphasis on rural populations.


Becoming a Leader

Living and training in Florence, SC allows for some specialized educational opportunities. While you're here, you will hone your leadership skills by meeting regularly with local health care, business, education and government leaders. Together you will develop and complete a community service project that will improve the lives of the citizens of Florence and help students better understand the local community.


When I heard that the Florence campus offered the challenging and unique opportunity to work directly with attending physicians and gain hands-on experience significantly above the average medical student, the decision to move there was easy.
