In the Department of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina, we take seriously our responsibilities of patient care, research, and education. In fact, the latter priorities support the former, as we train excellent physicians who will both treat patients and pursue new and creative ways of caring for the population.
We have a tremendous faculty with a wide range of interests, including world leaders in fields such as Gastroenterology and Rheumatology. Our residents are bright and compassionate individuals, and we have the privilege of working with the medical students at the Medical University of South Carolina.

Our Emergency Medicine Residency is a three-year training program with a PGY I, II, III configuration. The program was approved by the Residency Review Committee for Emergency Medicine in February 2006.
The Department of Medicine offers fellowship positions in nine medical subspecialties:
|Cardiovascular Medicine||Infectious Diseases|
|Endocrinology, Diabetes & Medical Genetics||Nephrology|
|Gastroenterology & Hepatology||Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine|
|General Internal Medicine||Rheumatology & Immunology|
Programs are for two or three years, depending on the subspecialty and the orientation of the trainee. These programs provide the necessary prerequisites for acceptance by the subspecialty boards of the American Board of Internal Medicine by offering subspecialty clinical training, research and didactic educational opportunities.
About 70% of the department's house staff graduates seek additional training in subspecialty fellowships, with 100% acceptance.
