COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
|Phi Chi Medical Fraternity (Phi Chi)|
Phi Chi Medical Fraternity was founded on March 31, 1889, to provide medical students with professional opportunities and social outlets. On the national level, the organization offers scholarships, the chance to network with other physicians, free housing while traveling, and other benefits.
The Sigma Kappa Chapter of Phi Chi enjoys being extremely involved at MUSC on many levels. Socially, our calendar was full from free information luncheons for all those interested in joining the fraternity, to a school wide Back to School Party with over 200 people in attendance, as well as a Halloween Party for members and non-members. But our role in the community was the focus of our fraternity this year, as we participated in, as well as organized, several philanthropic events that include participating in the MUSC Annual Sugar Free Fall Festival, sponsoring Primary Care Week Lecture Series and Alcohol Awareness speakers, sponsoring families at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as co-sponsoring a Mardi Gras party with 100% of proceeds benefiting Hurricane Katrina victims. We are also proud to be working with the Winwood Boys Home, an educational and rehabilitation center for abused boys.
Phi Chi is not an exclusive organization and welcomes all medical students. Our fraternity provides a way for medical students from first to fourth year to get to know and help each other. It is an outlet to relax through social activities and creates opportunities to get involved within the MUSC medical community and become leaders within the Charleston community through service projects.
