Palmetto Physician

The Palmetto Physician is one of the SCMA’s newest publications. Every day, we meet physicians, health care leaders, practices, and more…all who share unique perspectives about the practice of medicine. The goal of The Palmetto Physician is to highlight the great strides being made by these physician leaders and other key players in the health care arena, and to keep you informed about the latest trends in medicine.

Do you have an interesting story that you want to share with South Carolina physicians? Are you a physician who has a unique perspective on a health care issue? Did you win an award or another achievement? We want you to share your stories with us so we can highlight you in an upcoming issue of The Palmetto Physician.
