The Summer Medicine Academy is a one-week residential program. This program is jointly sponsored by the South Carolina Area Health and Education Consortium (AHEC) and the College of Medicine. Fifteen (15) Academy Fellows take part in a week of clinical and didactic sessions on the campus of MUSC, a shadowing experience as well as a community service project. Didactic sessions and project topics focus on health disparities prevalent among South Carolinians.
The program is designed to assist minority and disadvantaged students to prepare for entry into medical education training programs within South Carolina.
