AnMed Health residents leave with more than solid medical training. They leave with a family. New Resident Weekend lets incoming physicians explore their surroundings and get to know the residency staff. Social outings throughout the year - from supper clubs to trivia nights - help residents and faculty form lasting friendships.
The best way to learn is by doing. So in addition to practicing family medicine, residents go through a variety of experiences from a mock deposition to a weeklong procedures workshop. A community medicine scavenger hunt allows residents to discover the wealth of resources Anderson has to offer. If you've got the makings of a world traveler, ask about AnMed Health's global health elective. This unique opportunity has allowed several residents to travel abroad and gain an understanding of health care in other countries.
Hiliary Weill, MD - Chief Resident, Class of 2018
"I grew up in Spartanburg, in the heart of the upstate of South Carolina. I was fortunate enough to go to Clemson University for undergraduate, right down the road from AnMed. I haven’t always known that I wanted to go in to medicine but after finishing up undergraduate in BioEngineering, I was on my way to MUSC and positive that I was on track for a great career. Then during my 4th year of medical school, I had the opportunity to go to AnMed for a majority of my 4th year. The experience I had there was phenomenal, so much so that I wanted to stay for my Family Medicine Residency. The people, patients, staff, and faculty impressed me the most about AnMed. I felt at home immediately.
"Not only is Anderson an amazing city, it’s got great surroundings. My husband and I love to take our dog out to the lake for a swim or to go kayaking. We also like to hike some of the many surrounding trails. In our other free time, we love to go to the gym and workout. AnMed has offered me so many opportunities. The connections I have made with other residents and faculty are invaluable and the education that I have received has me well on my way to accomplishing my personal and professional goals."
