  S.C.'s bid to lure medical researchers: attainable or not?
BY JONATHAN MAZE
Of The Post and Courier Staff
May 10, 2004
As a researcher at a major cancer center in Philadelphia, Kenneth Tew could have been excused if he stayed content with where he was.

After all, the City of Brotherly Love is a great place to do medical research. It's a big population center. Funding is readily available. And big drug companies are nearby.

So why was Tew unloading boxes last Monday at his new lab at the Medical University of South Carolina? Copyright © 2004, The Post and Courier. (Complete Story)

Tuition going up at MUSC BY JONATHAN MAZE Of The Post and Courier Staff When Valerie Bush entered pharmacy school at the Medical University of South Carolina three years ago, tuition for a semester amounted to $2,900. On Thursday, MUSC's board approved a 20 percent tuition increase for next year, meaning Bush will pay $4,439 a semester, 53 percent more than when she started school.

 MUSC sends 575 graduates on their way
Cousins carry on long line of doctors

If it ever slipped their minds that they attended the same medical school as their grandfather, Arthur Baker and Peter Grayson had a constant reminder: a building at MUSC named in his honor.

On Friday, Baker and Grayson, who are cousins, graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina's medical school, 60 years after their grandfather Dr. Peter Gazes, a longtime university cardiologist for whom Gazes Cardiac Research Institute was named.

 Project delay cramps dental school
College endures poor conditions while lawmakers postpone money for new building
BY JONATHAN MAZE
Of The Post and Courier Staff
May 27, 2004
Some of the workers and students who walked into a clinic on the second floor of the Medical University of South Carolina's dental school last week found two inches of water covering the floor. It didn't surprise them much. "We're always having floods," dental assistant Gloria Folk said with a shrug.

Construction of a new College of Dental Medicine on Bee Street was supposed to have begun by now. But while the project was originally projected to be done by September 2006, not a single shovel of earth has been turned.Copyright © 2004, The Post and Courier. (Complete Story)

 MUSC hospital construction hits delays
HEALTH CARE
BY JONATHAN MAZE
Of The Post and Courier Staff
May 24, 2004
Don't expect work to begin on the actual Medical University of South Carolina hospital until January.

The university has already done some site work, such as removing the old McClennan-Banks building, and plans to do more this summer. But delays in federal approval of the project keep pushing construction back.

MUSC is relying on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to back bonds that would pay for the project. The backing would allow the university to sell the bonds at a lower interest rate than it could get on its own, making the $333 million project much more affordable.
