The Medical University of South Carolina’s College of Medicine is leading the way in all areas of the MUSC mission – medical education, patient care, and biomedical research – at our main campus in downtown Charleston and across the state. The largest and oldest academic medical center in South Carolina, we serve a diverse group of more than 740 medical students, 780 trainees in residency and fellowship programs, and patients throughout our state and beyond.
MUSC prepared me well for the next level. My experience here provided me with foundational knowledge and helped me to develop the skills necessary to succeed in a career in medicine.
Ken Kennedy, MD, Duke Univ. Emergency Medicine Intern of the Year
I’ve been impressed by the intentionality and kindness of faculty members, pre-clinical faculty to physicians, who welcome me into their practice and always genuinely want to see students grow.
Jackson Pearce, second-year medical student
Watching students’ dreams come true at graduation is an indescribable moment of happiness for our team. To witness the transition from entering student to physician brings sheer joy.
Myra Haney Singleton, EdD, Associate Dean for Student Affairs & Student Wellness
Charleston is my home and MUSC quickly became my family. MUSC has given me the ability to treat the same individuals who have inspired me to become a physician and has molded me to becoming an equipped physician of the future.
Ka’la Drayton, MHIT, fourth-year medical student
Once you’re a student here, you get to be a part of a whole new family – one that not only wants you to succeed, but also equips you with the tools necessary to do so.
Stephen Patrick, fourth-year medical student
The charm of downtown Charleston drew me in, but the residents made this program my first choice. Even still, my intent was to return home after residency. Then when deciding on my first attending position, I couldn’t turn down a chance to stay at MUSC in a department with an amazing group of mentors!
Kristen Hood Watson, MD, 2013-14 Chief Resident, Assistant Dean for Resident Inclusion
I had the most incredible experience here as a medical student. I received an unparalleled medical education, met some fantastic people including faculty and peers, and, most importantly, grew so much as a person through it all.
