We have been training lawyers, judges, lawmakers and governors since 1867 and have remained true to our mission of teaching law through in-depth study, while supporting research by faculty and staff that frequently is used to improve the lives of others through legal reform.
We educate and train many of our state’s doctors, lawyers and pharmacists.
For more than 30 years, our School of Medicine has been a leader in primary care education, pioneering research and providing humanistic patient care. Our students are immediately introduced to real-world health care settings and situations to make them master clinicians committed to patient care. We also provide excellent health care to our communities through our hospital partnerships.
After 20 years of training many of our third- and fourth-year medical students, Greenville Hospital Systems partnered with us to create a whole new school serving the Upstate of South Carolina and beyond. We are one of just two medical schools in the country that trains you as an EMT in the first six weeks of your medical education. This introduction to the world of medicine and real patient care skills are the foundation for your medical education.
We are part of the South Carolina College of Pharmacy, which was formed in 2004 through the integration of the Colleges of Pharmacy at the University of South Carolina in Columbia and the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Students also have the option of completing their last two years at Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center. The combined resources of the two schools strengthens our ability to educate our students to become leaders in the industry and in meeting the pharmacy needs of our residents.
