Gregory-Chandler Endowed Chair in Family Medicine

The MUSC Department of Family Medicine is the third oldest family medicine department in the country. We celebrated our 50th anniversary on February 4, 2020. I am working on a history of our department using records from the AAFP archives as well as the MUSC archives. Much of the background work has been done and the student working with me this summer would help to integrate the material and write at least one paper on the birth of MUSC Family Medicine. A second project in the area of medical education focuses on residency selection personal statements and dean's letters from our departmental archives. The student researcher would work with me on developing a qualitative analytical tool to review these and work on a paper on how these essential elements of a residency application have evolved.
