Clinical work helps students learn how to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses. These
departments use their close ties with clinical partners across the state to train
medical students through coursework, clerkships, residencies and fellowships.
A Strong Partnership
Our partnership with Palmetto Health has helped our university bring in a larger number
of faculty who are also practicing physicians. These faculty are perfectly poised
to give you the mentorship and hands-on experience you need throughout your medical
education. It also means both partners have increased the number and range of their
specialties, giving all our students more options as they choose their career path.
