The Center for Health Disparities Research at the Medical University of South Carolina is focused on eliminating racial/ethnic, socioeconomic and rural/urban disparities in health.
through excellence in all phases of our work and continually improving our programs and practices based on new knowledge.
to communities through development of health interventions that are effective and practical in the real world.
Part of our mission is to encourage and train the next generation of investigators in health disparities research. We offer opportunities for students in medical and health fields to work with us and have seen many graduates continue to pursue those interests in their professional careers. In addition, we provide funding for pilot studies and take proposals on an ongoing basis.
