Our Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Welcome to the Medical University of South Carolina’s Emergency Medicine Residency program! Our program is in its 11th year of operation, and consists of a three-year program with 10 residents per class. The goal when you complete this program is to become an excellent emergency medicine physician who is ready for independent practice out in the community, or in the academic world as well. We have a variety of paths you can take during your academic journey through our program, including global health, ultrasound, critical care, and pediatric emergency medicine – and you get to do all of this in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. We look forward to receiving your application and feel free to reach out to any of us for questions you may have.Please visit our section links, on the drop down menu to the left, which give further details on our application process, benefits, and rotation structure.

Visiting Student Information

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-crisis we will not be accepting applications for Visiting Student (VSAS) rotations during the 2020-2021 academic year. This was an extremely hard decision to make, both for the Institution and the Program. We certainly hope you will consider our Program during the ERAS Season, and look forward to reviewing your application!

The ERAS application deadline is November 15, 2020. Applications will not be accepted after that date. We will begin reviewing ERAS applications and inviting EM Residency Applicants after October 21, 2020.
