About the Clinic:

Our MUSC Pediatrics and Internal Medicine Clinic opened in January 2020 and now serves as the Med-Peds continuity clinic for all incoming classes, starting with the 2020 PGY-1 class.  It is the first clinic of its kind within the MUSC community and is already a huge success! We attract a diverse patient population that offers outstanding opportunities for primary care teaching across the entire lifespan.

The clinic is located about 20 minutes from our downtown campus at 2750 Dantzler Avenue in North Charleston. Several MUSC laboratory and imaging facilities are located nearby for easy patient access.
