 MUSC: Over 100 Years Training Residents

The Medical University of South Carolina is committed to establishing and maintaining high quality Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs. We offer training in 53  accredited specialties and subspecialties (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education/ACGME).  MUSC also has numerous other specialized training programs.  Our goal is to facilitate the residents' professional and personal development fostering an environment where they have the opportunity to excel in service, teaching and research while exhibiting ethical and professional modes of practice. While maintaining compliance standards in accordance with the ACGME, we strive to maintain our reputation as a nationally recognized GME program.

MUSC began training “Resident House Physicians” in 1887 with four graduates who were appointed by the Board of the Hospital Commissioners.    Today, we educate more than 600 residents in our training programs.

MUSC offers a diverse patient population, dedicated faculty and outstanding clinical and basic science departments.  Charleston combines a thriving economy, rich history and breathtaking environment.  Our quality of life is second to none.

The GME Office is located in Room 202 of the Main Hospital.  Our staff encourages you to stop by in person, call or e-mail us with any comments or suggestions.  We are committed to supporting the resident trainees, and the faculty and staff, including program directors and coordinators, in our residency programs.
