Summer Institute


The Summer Institute is a six-week program designed to help increase MCAT scores and provide professional development for aspiring medical school applicants. At the recommendation of the Admissions Committee, students are invited to apply for the program. Students who are accepted into the program take courses at MUSC administered by the Center for Academic Excellence. At the end of the program, students receive a certificate of completion. Along with the courses, opportunities to interact with health care providers and weekly seminars will be provided. Special topics include financial counseling, health disparities, wellness, writing personal statements, time management, and mock interviews. 


The purpose of the Summer Institute is to increase the number of underrepresented groups, to include racial/ethnic minorities, rural and/or first-generation college students, as well as other students interested in further diversifying the physician workforce from South Carolina who are matriculating into the medical profession.
