For routine, non-emergent health needs, the Employee Care Center (ECC) at Greenville Memorial Hospital serves as a student health center for USC Medical Students. The ECC is staffed by several experienced nurse practitioners with physician back-up and referral when clinically indicated. No member of the ECC staff has any responsibility in medical student education or grading. Appointments (864-455-2455) are strongly encouraged as walk-in patients may have a long wait. The student health services plan will provide basic gynecological services only at ECC.
MD360 is staffed by GHS physicians and is available to students for non-emergent health needs. Students can see physicians who are not actively involved in teaching for services that include routine and sick care, radiology services, lab services, vaccinations and basic orthopedic care for minor injuries. MD360 has four different locations in the Greenville area that are available to students.

Counseling and Behavioral Health Services
Counseling services will be provided by the Employee Assistance Program, located at 1020 Grove Road. EAP is staffed by licensed counselors who take no part in medical education. Services offered through EAP cover many types of counseling as well as referrals when necessary. USC medical students are eligible to receive most services at the EAP at no additional charge. However, students who request more than 12 sessions of individual counseling per academic year may incur additional charges.
Medical students will be provided a membership to the Life Center, located on the Greenville Memorial Hospital campus, within walking distance from the Health Sciences Education Building. The Life Center has a variety of physical fitness equipment, wellness and nutrition programs, an indoor pool, an indoor running track, outdoor running/walking path and organized exercise and fitness programs led by exercise physiologists.
