Research

During the last two years, each resident is asked to prepare a presentation at the annual South Carolina American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine meeting. Case reports, original clinical research investigations, literature reviews or laboratory experiences are acceptable topics.

Residents interested in further research are encouraged and can find among the faculty willing and enthusiastic mentors. The Prisma Health Department of Research provides biostatistical, epidemiological and editorial support services.
