Medical Education

Program Information

Our medical education program offers integrative, hands-on experience for students while working under the direct supervision of an attending physician and rotating through each major discipline of medicine:

  • Family medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Internal medicine
  • OB-GYN
  • Neurology
  • Psychiatry
  • General surgery

Students have multiple learning opportunities, including:

  • Continuity clinic - Students participate in rotations at the Anderson Free Clinic, offering continuous management of patients' chronic diseases. With graduated responsibility, medical students perform all the functions of a primary care physician for their patients. Continuity clinic is a great way to build a mentoring relationship with an attending physician, and provides the opportunity for practice-based learning, as students analyze performance outcomes for their own patients and implement systematic changes for quality improvement.
  • Didactics - All of our didactics and seminars are provided in a small-group format, providing ample opportunity for medical students to interact and engage in active learning.
  • Hispanic Health Fair - At this annual health fair, medical education students provide medical screenings and information to members of the Hispanic community in Anderson County. Students administer flu vaccines, check blood pressure and blood glucose, and perform foot exams and other screenings.
  • Simulation lab - Part of Anderson University's College of Health Professions, the Center for Medical Simulations is designed to provide a realistic clinical experience for medical students. The Center has more than a dozen human simulators; this cutting-edge technology looks like human-scale replicas of patients, from newborns to adults, and can simulate a variety of conditions, including asthma attacks, congestive heart failure and seizures. Interactive in every way, the simulators allow students to ask questions — and get responses — while practicing skills ranging from CPR to the care and maintenance of test tubes.
