Medical school has always challenged the brightest and best-prepared minds. Here at MUSC we created a curriculum to teach and train doctors to be better prepared to handle the realities of a new era in medicine. As a medical student, you have accepted the challenge of learning a profession that is ever changing. The goal is to master the art of learning itself. As an integral part of our medical teams, you will experience the correlation between basic science concepts, clinical practice, interventions, and therapies. You will learn to see, feel, hear, and think medically in real-time.
Our Web site includes a wide range of information and resources that we think you will find useful as you begin your rotations here at MUSC. Use the links below to learn more.
"While on the medicine rotation, students develop the best medical information base in order to realize what their limitations are, a sign of being a fine physician." - Julius Sagel M.D
