The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) will begin accepting applications for the 2012-2013 Academic Year beginning May 1, 2012.
MUSC offers a wide number of electives and externships to medical students who are in the last year of their studies. All applications are reviewed by the department in which the student applies. Students must have successfully completed the basic core clerkships (Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Surgery, Psychiatry, and Family Medicine) in order to be eligible - NO EXCEPTIONS. All approvals are at the discretion of the department.
Only complete applications are processed. Approval notices are sent via email and will include additional information and requirements. All required documentation must be received 60 days prior to the start of the approved rotation.
