Department of Surgery Alumni
Originally founded in 1964, the Curtis P. Artz MUSC Surgical Society is a member organization representing alumni of the MUSC surgery residency programs, fellows, and Department of Surgery faculty members. Curtis P. Artz (1915-1977) was a renowned trauma and burn surgeon who joined the faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina in 1965. He served as professor and chairman of the Department of Surgery until his untimely death in 1977.
After an extended hiatus, the Artz Society was reformed in 2010 with the goal of developing an engaged, supportive and proud group of surgical alumni.
In 1937, Curtis Hunsucker, MD, finished as the first resident from the Medical College of South Carolina Department of Surgery's Resident program. Since then, almost 100 more individuals have finished the program and gone on to help communities around the world.
