Message From Dr. Scott Reeves

The Department of Anesthesia's “can-do” mentality along with all that our beautiful city has to offer creates a wonderful environment in which to train, work and live.

AHEAD Visiting Student Program

The AHEAD Visiting Student Program is sponsored by the MUSC College of Medicine Dean's Office, the MUSC Group on Diversity Affairs, and individual departments. AHEAD-VSP is open to students from underrepresented groups, including students with disabilities, those from rural backgrounds, first-generation college students, members of the LGBTQ community, those from disadvantaged or marginalized backgrounds, and other students interested in diversifying the physician workforce and/or addressing healthcare disparities in the communities they serve. The goal of this program is to recruit talented 4th-year students to MUSC who have met all requirements for visiting student rotations listed in VSLO.

All students selected for this program in participating departments will have their $175 rotation fee waived and will have the opportunity to meet with a member of the College of Medicine Dean's Office and/or the residency program director during their time at MUSC to discuss available DEI opportunities at MUSC.
