HomeResidency Internal Medicine Program Overview

Program Overview

The Palmetto Health/USC School of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency Program is a fully accredited three-year training program offering in-depth exposure to primary patient care and subspecialties in internal medicine.

My residency experience: Internal Medicine

Malissa Etheredge, MD, completed her internal medicine residency at Palmetto Health. Now completing a fellowship in geriatrics, Etheredge was inspired by her mother, Lisa Wilson, MD, a practicing geriatrician with Palmetto SeniorCare PACE.

In our program, residents devote time to inpatient care in the general medicine services at Palmetto Health Richland and the Dorn VA Medical Center., in addition to ambulatory care, medical intensive care and elective subspecialty rotations. Second and third-year rotations include cardiology, pulmonary, gastroenterology, allergy/immunology, nephrology, neurology, rheumatology, dermatology, hematology/oncology, infectious disease and emergency medicine. All residents also spend one afternoon each week in the general medicine outpatient clinic evaluating new patients and return patients for experience in outpatient continuity of care.
