Galen Health Fellows

Meeting the needs of a complex and rapidly growing health care industry means preparing you to not only meet these new workplace demands, but challenging you to discover where your interests fit within this vast, dynamic industry.

At the University of South Carolina, we are committed to leading the way in health professions education.

If you are interested in pre-med, pre-dental, biology, biomedical engineering, cardiovascular technology, chemistry or biochemistry, exercise science, nursing, pharmacy, psychology, public health or social work, you can be confident that you will benefit from a university that offers one of the most diverse and comprehensive selections of health-related majors.

Be a Galen Health Fellow

One major benefit for any USC student pursuing a health profession is the ability to apply to the Galen Health Fellows program. As a Galen Health Fellow you don't just join a program, you join a community of driven students interested in health-related fields, guided by a faculty principal and supported by a group of faculty and upper-class mentors.

How you will benefit

You will be exposed to rich experiential learning opportunities like specially-designated courses, a mentorship program, access to undergraduate research opportunities, and potential research grants and professional development opportunities specific to exploring potential career paths.

This program is designed with an interprofessional approach in mind and to ensure that when you graduate, you are among the most qualified and highly sought professionals to enter the health sciences, health administration, health IT or other careers in the health care industry
