Medical University of South Carolina


The primary goal when you complete this program is to be not just a competent, but an excellent emergency medicine physician ready for independent practice. They have all of the other bells and whistles to get you to any EM path you would like to travel, but the base is the same for all of their resident physicians. And they get to do all of this in Charleston, SC. They look forward to receiving your application and answering any questions you may have.
