Department of Medicine

Welcome to the Department of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. Our tripartite mission is to deliver the highest quality clinical care; to perform innovative and transformational research; and to educate the next generation of Internal Medicine physicians.


Assign trainees to services based on education needs, and not necessarily service needs.  This implies the need to effectively partner with APP’s, MOA’s and/or deploy other creative approaches/mechanisms.      

Prepare all faculty members with exposure to learners (students, residents and fellows) to support this educational redesign.


Optimize the Department research infrastructure.  

Establish specific areas of Department research expertise and leverage University expertise.

Ensure that “every patient” has an opportunity to participate in research trials.

Patient Care

Improve the patient experience.       

Enable data-driven high value (highest quality at lowest cost) clinical care.
