Resident Auxiliary

Welcome residents, fellows and families!

To learn about life in Columbia, view our Resident Auxiliary Guide.

The Palmetto Health Resident Auxiliary is a support group and extended social network of residents, fellows and their significant others dedicated to providing opportunities for fun and fellowship outside of work. We are excited to have you here as you embark on the next phase of your training.

Columbia is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. Columbia offers everything from the great outdoors and night life to family-friendly fun and cultural events. The Resident Auxiliary organizes a variety of social events each year such as holiday parties, dinners and trips to the zoo. We also coordinate opportunities to support different charitable and service organizations in our local community. We welcome any new ideas for gatherings, community connections, or activities.

Our hope is that through these events, single residents, couples and families with children will be able to make Columbia their new home-away-from-home. The Auxiliary also will be supplying vital information to prospective and incoming residents to help them better adjust to their new city. We look forward to sharing information on buying and renting in area neighborhoods, as well as school districts, and local amenities like publics parks and more.

We are here to answer any questions you may have and look forward to meeting all of you throughout the year. Again, congratulations and welcome to the Palmetto Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine family!

If you are interested in volunteering with the Resident Auxiliary, the Office of Graduate Medical Education helps make participation easy and fun. Contact Margie Bodie for more information.
