Medical Education

The Department of Surgery at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine provides an exceptional medical education program for aspiring physicians as medical students and surgical residents.   Through our residency partnerships with Palmetto Health and the William Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center, we are able to provide in-depth, hands-on clinical opportunities.

Medical students are involved in clerkships and didactic sessions that provide a consistent, real-world experience, helping to improve learning and retention.  Because we understand the important role we play in training future surgeons, expertly trained faculty builds a trusting relationship with residents to ensure their success as competent, compassionate clinicians.  Our individualized approach to training enables each doctor-in-training to excel and fulfill his/her greatest potential as physicians and  surgeons.  Find out more about our surgery residency.
