Our Graduates


Dr. KaiCee Richardson currently practices at Georgetown Pediatrics, one of the PCT's main training sites for outpatient primary care. She acquired her love for this special population while rotating through the practice during her second and third years of residency. She enjoys serving the underserved rural children of South Carolina in the state's poorest city.

Dr. Sarah Michalowski practices with Coastal Pediatrics here in Charleston, SC. She says of her PCT experience: “ I am so grateful for the training I received from the primary care track!  The skills I learned have given me the confidence to hit the ground running in this busy private practice, knowing that I have had excellent experiences caring for all manner of patients and pathologies efficiently and autonomously and without the support of having a children's hospital across the street.”


Dr. Tessa Wyborny currently practices with Ole Health, which is a federally qualified health center located in Napa, California. “Approximately half of my patient population is Spanish-speaking only, so I am putting my skills from my time spent at MUSC Northwoods to good use! I take care of children of all ages, but I have a special interest in behavioral problems and ADHD management. The skills that I learned while in the primary care program at MUSC have helped me to hit the ground running in a very busy practice!” 

Dr. Mariah Scott practices with Gateway Pediatrics in Chandler, Arizona. She feels the Primary Care Track helped her feel prepared to function in a busy outpatient setting and handle acute visits efficiently. She found the PCT was very appealing to potential employers.


Dr. Naylor Brownell is a fellow in pediatric gastroenterology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. After serving a chief resident for MUSC Pediatrics, Dr. Brunell started fellowship at CHOP. He is a great example of a resident who changed courses during residency, and was able to successfully secure a specialty training position.

Dr. Luke Edmondson practices with MUSC at the Children’s Care Network – the University’s Medical Home outpatient clinic.  He works in Moncks Corner South Carolina serving a patient population that is rural and mostly Medicaid funded. “I strongly believe that having been in the Primary Care Program helped me to be ready to start my new job in an outpatient clinic as a general pediatrician with confidence in my ability to provide good care.  I feel that if you know you want to go into primary care, the MUSC Primary Care Program is an excellent residency to prepare you for that goal.”
