We are Tidelands Health

At Tidelands Health, more than 2,000 physician and employee partners work side by side with our patients to transform the health of our region -- promoting wellness, preventing illness, encouraging recovery and restoring health.

The Tidelands Health MUSC Family Medicine Residency Program provides a learning environment based on best practice that allows you to develop both professionally and personally in a community-oriented and responsive environment. We affirm our commitment to shaping a culture of teaching and learning that is rooted in respect for all, fostering resilience, excellence, compassion and integrity, allowing us to create patient care and learning environments that are built upon constructive collaboration, mutual respect and human dignity.

Our Program Goals

At the end of the program, residents will be able to:

  1. Work collaboratively and effectively in a multidisciplinary team environment caring for patients in a patient-centered medical home model across a spectrum of settings.

  2. Competently and cost effectively provide comprehensive care for a broad range of medical conditions to a diverse group of patients in a culturally sensitive manner.

  3. Understand the tools of disease management, systems-based care and population health to more effectively care for people with chronic illnesses and to apply preventive health strategies.

  4. Be effective communicators with the team, families and patients.

  5. Provide effective and direct end-of-life counseling to patients and families.

    Building Resilience

    We provide each resident a membership at Tidelands HealthPoint Center for Health and Fitness. Here, you can get ready for the day ahead with a workout on a wide array of fitness equipment, or you can end your day here swimming laps in the indoor pool or relaxing in the sauna.

    Understand patient decision-making and patient satisfaction drivers.

  7. Understand and utilize the principles of quality improvement and systems thinking to reduce variation and the utilization of data to improve performance.

  8. Possess broad leadership skills to foster community engagement, civic responsibility and serve as community-based health system leaders.

Our program will also seek to support each resident’s development of:

  • The emotional intelligence needed to deal with change and ambiguity
  • A healthy work-life balance
  • A commitment to lifelong learning and service

The aim of our program is to provide meaningful instruction so our residents can meet the required competencies to become board-certified family physicians using the guidelines of the ACGME and the RRC for family medicine.
