Med-Peds Residency: Leadership Message

Welcome to MUSC Med-Peds and thank you for your interest! Our program accepted its first resident in 1999 and has since graduated outstanding Med-Peds physicians who have chosen careers as primary care providers, hospitalists, adult, pediatric and combined specialists. Our program offers diverse opportunities for state-of-the-art patient care in an outstanding medical facility that is ranked #1 in South Carolina by U.S. News and World Report with multiple pediatric and adult specialties ranked in the top 50 nationally! We are excited to have transitioned all 16 residents to our Med-Peds continuity clinic where they experience incredible primary care training from Med-Peds trained faculty!

Heading into another year of recruitment, our goal is to ensure that our applicants can appreciate our values as a program and what truly makes us unique, in both our curriculum and our people, whom we consider our greatest strength.

Our residents are accomplished in all facets of medicine including clinical, teaching, and research. They demonstrate leadership within our Med-Peds program, the categorical programs, and across the institution. They receive mentorship from an amazing group of Med-Peds trained faculty who support them both academically and personally.

As program leadership, we have strived to create a warm and welcome environment in which our Med-Peds residents thrive within the categorical departments but also have numerous opportunities to demonstrate how Med-Peds is unique and valuable. We are proud of our solid Med-Peds identity at MUSC, and our residents develop close, supportive bonds that last a lifetime.

We encourage you to review our information and contact us with any questions. We also invite you to explore our beautiful City of Charleston, take a moment and tour Charleston with one of our local favorites, Darius Rucker. With great food, amazing culture, and beautiful beaches, it is easy to see why Charleston is a fantastic place to work and live!

We welcome any questions you may have. We love to discuss our program and Med-Peds!

Warm Regards,

Sarah Mennito, M.D.
