Florence Regional Campus

With a class size of roughly 20 students per class, our campus in Florence gives this set of students individualized instruction in an exceptional learning environment, while exposing them to every facet of the health care profession, ensuring that they are prepared for the next step in their medical education.

What is Florence?

We are the regional clinical campus for the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia educating and providing opportunities for third and fourth year medical students. Established in 2014, our campus has office and educational space located in downtown Florence at the Francis Marion University Carter Center, along with two tertiary care hospitals, a large federally qualified health care center and multiple independent specialty practice offices that make up our exceptional clinical learning environment.

About the Campus

The administration offices for the Florence Regional Campus are located within the Luther F. Carter Center for Health Sciences Complex in downtown Florence, S.C. While our students spend the majority of their time in the clinical space, we hold monthly educational opportunities within the the space that encompass medical didactic education, career building, financial literacy, community outreach/partnerships and scholarly opportunites for students to participate in among others.

Our goal is to provide the best educational opportunity possible for our students who choose Florence, while giving them an experience that will prepare them for a career in any specialty they choose.
