The award is presented to all VCOM alumni who serve as a preceptor for 3 international outreach trips. Dr. White is the first alumni to receive this award and has completed 19 international outreach trips as a student, resident and preceptor.
VCOM-Carolinas faculty members Joel Atance, PhD; Stephan Brown, MD, PhD; Cindy McKinney, PhD; and Bethany Powers, DO, recently shared their time and expertise with local students by volunteering as judges for the Piedmont Region III Science Fair at the University of South Carolina (USC) Upstate in Spartanburg.
An article written by VCOM-Carolinas students Renée M. Rosati (’17) and Amy Schlegel, MPH (’19), was recently published in The Journal, the quarterly publication of the South Carolina Medical Association. The article, titled “The Physician Exodus: Addressing the Shortage of Graduate Medical Education in South Carolina,” focuses on an important topic for physicians and medical students in South Carolina and throughout the Appalachian region.
