An Institution Built On Pride
This is your College of Medicine.
It is the oldest medical school in the South and the 17th oldest in the United States.
It was founded in 1824 by a small group of physicians who served as its faculty and supported it financially. Its first classes were taught by a team of seven professors, in a single building in downtown Charleston. Its first graduating class included five members.
From these austere beginnings grew the state’s largest academic medical center, one that today includes 25 departments and is recognized as a national leader in medical education, research and patient care.
- Our students consistently exceed the national pass rate on their board exams and they continue to garner residency positions in the country’s finest training programs.
- The College is an invaluable source of physicians for the citizens of our state, as more than half of our graduates remain in the state.
- The College of Medicine conducts more than $206 million in biomedical research each year. This provides our students a rich environment to diversify their learning, to be a part of revolutionary cures and treatments and, most importantly, take this knowledge into the communities they will serve.
Loyal alumni such as you have been key to the College’s success. Through your continued involvement, advocacy and philanthropic support, you have empowered us to create the richest learning environment possible. You are the key to the future success for many of our students.
