Summary

Hepatitis C is the most common form of hepatitis in the United States. With the prevalence on the rise, it is important to consider utilizing more accessible healthcare providers to provide patient care for these patients. Due to the evolution of hepatitis C medications and the cure rates proving almost 100% cure, we believe that utilizing these providers is an appropriate option for care.

Caring for patients with hepatitis C has been integrated into the Palmetto Health-USC Family Medicine resident curriculum since 2017 to help residents gain exposure to treating the disease during residency. To date, the treatment success rate for resident primary care providers has not been studied.
