Underrepresented in Medicine Alumni

In 1971, the College of Medicine conferred a Medical Degree to our first African American medical school graduate, marking an important milestone and a new era for MUSC. Since that time, we have worked to open the doors to more students and support them along the journey from application to graduation and beyond.

Following years of steady growth in our efforts and enrollment, we believe it is important to stay in touch with our Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM) alumni.  

We want to celebrate your successes, and we know that our alumni are one of the best tools we have for engaging and supporting future students.

Opportunities to Support

With an eye on our past and a vision for the future, we are working harder than ever to increase representation in the College Medicine, and to support individuals while they advance in their medical careers. Staffing and programming are critical elements in this effort, as is alumni involvement.  Learn how you can become involved in supporting current and future students.
