Our school is looking toward the future with the goal of supporting the health needs
of South Carolina and beyond through exemplary medical education, research that matters
and quality patient care initiatives.
M.D. program and graduate programs are helping grow a pipeline of skilled health care professionals and biomedical scientists
who will help advance the health of our state, our nation and beyond.
Our programs take full advantage of the University of South Carolina's status as a
Tier 1 research university. Students work closely with faculty mentors who are engaged
in impactful research both in the lab and at the patient bedside.
Our faculty members help staff the Prisma Health-Midlands Medical Group, the largest
multispecialty, clinically integrated group in the Midlands. School of Medicine faculty
members also provide patient care at a number of other South Carolina healthcare systems.
