Trident/MUSC family medicine resident uses telehealth to gain valuable experience before graduation.

The next generation of doctors are studying at the Medical University of South Carolina and many even stay in the area for residency and beyond.

Dr. Sara Khalil is one such student. She is months away from graduating the residency program at MUSC/Trident Health in Charleston. She’s learning how to care for patients of all ages, and the MUSC/Trident residency program is also teaching her to care for a patient who never has to leave their house to see her.

Doctors are teaching residents how to use telehealth to provide more convenient care for residents. Telehealth gives patients more access to providers, and it gives residents valuable experience with new technology before they’re practicing medicine on their own.
