In order to give MUSC’s students interested in surgery the best possible chance of achieving their career goals, the Department of Surgery’s Undergraduate Medical Education Committee has developed this website to provide information to students intending to apply for the match in General Surgery or one of the integrated surgical residency match programs in Plastic Surgery, CT Surgery, and Vascular Surgery. This information may also be useful for faculty advisors advising students during the match process. Students are advised to use this information in making decisions about their match list preparation. However, a student's advisor remains the best source of advice and information. Students should meet regularly with their advisor throughout the match process.
The American College of Surgeons provides, on their website, information useful to students interested in applying to surgical residency programs.
