The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville offers several student
organizations that foster diversity.
Global Health Interest Group
The Global Health Interest Group aims to promote student interest in health advocacy
and aid for the developing world. In addition to providing lunch-and-learns, this
year our group aims to increase fundraising for global health relief and volunteering.
Latino Medical Student Association
The mission of the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) is to "unite and empower
Latino (and non-Latino) medical students through service, mentorship, and education

that share our goal in order to more actively and hollistically improve the lives
of those we serve.

LGBTQ patients by educating future and current healthcare providers via focus groups,
