The Medical University of South Carolina is a freestanding state-supported university offering graduate and undergraduate degrees in a range of health-related fields. The medical school is one of the oldest in the country and currently graduates approximately 150 medical students annually. Most of the clinical departments support residency programs and fellowships. The Medical University Hospital complex includes a Children’s Hospital that has been rated among the best in the country. The Medical University Hospital is a tertiary care perinatal center servicing the lower third of South Carolina including the entire coastal region. We currently deliver approximately 2800 babies annually. Approximately 60% of these patients are considered high-risk because of medical or obstetrical complications. Our ambulatory practice includes consultative services and ongoing prenatal care for high-risk pregnancies. Our state-of-the-art AIUM certified prenatal diagnostic center (The Prenatal Wellness Center) performs over 12,000 ultrasounds annually. We have three genetic counselors on site. We offer amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, Doppler studies, and cordocentesis for prenatal diagnosis.
Our program is fully accredited by the ACGME and approved for one fellow at each level. The fellows are assigned to a total of 15 months of clinical responsibility, 3 months of elective rotations, and 18 months are protected for research and to pursue a graduate degree. Fellows also participate in the educational conferences of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, case conferences, research meetings and a didactic seminar series designed specifically for the fellows.
