School of Medicine Columbia

Palmetto Health USC Medical Group

By unifying the medical excellence of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine with the advanced technologies of Palmetto Health, we go beyond caring for people. We care about people.

The Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group is a not-for-profit company that brings together physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health care providers from two of South Carolina’s most respected organizations – Palmetto Health and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. We are the Midlands region’s largest multi-specialty, clinically-integrated medical group, and its 11th largest employer.


The Perfect Combination

This is just the start of a new way to deliver medical care to our community. We offer the best of of what both organizations have to offer, combining the medical excellence, compassionate care and clinical research expertise of a medical school that has taught many of the health care providers in our community and the patient-centered approach and advanced technology of a modern health care system. 


Serving Our Patients

We are building a system to provide our patients with many new services and areas of expertise, providing greater access to care in convenient locations. All patients cared for by Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group providers will not need to take any additional action – all medical records have been transferred to the new group, and community members will continue to access their providers using the same contact methods they have in the past.



What it Means for the Patient and the Student

Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group allows patients to access the depth and breadth of both of our parent organizations, offering improved care and expanded research collaboration opportunities. USC School of Medicine students will learn in an interprofessional and team-based environment, ensuring the next generation of physicians is positioned to build the knowledge they need to provide excellent care in the future.

We look to build something new by reimagining possibilities and are guided by our firm commitment to our Vision, “To be known for clinical excellence and remembered for compassionate care.”
