For more than 190 years, the Medical University of South Carolina has worked to educate the health care professionals of the future, save lives, conquer illness and end human suffering, in turn empowering people to make the most of the precious few days that make up a lifetime. We operate under a three-part mission of cutting-edge research, compassionate patient care and world-class education. To accomplish our goals, we rely upon the generous support of thousands of alumni, patients, like-minded citizens and friends of the University, businesses and foundations — donors who share our belief in the paramount importance of better health.
