New Faculty Information

Welcome to the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. We're thrilled to have you as a member of our team. As you settle into your position, it's normal to have a lot of questions. That's why we've compiled a variety of tools and resources to support you through your first days and weeks on the job.

Please visit our faculty resources page for development aids, policies, and procedural information.

USCSOM Greenville and the Greenville Health System are committed to avoiding unnecessary conflicts of interest, and effectively managing those that are unavoidable. Faculty are expected to exercise integrity in all of their relationships, and make their departmental chairs (or appropriate supervisory contact) aware of all outside activities to identify and manage possible conflicts or appearance of conflicts. This is important with respect to teaching responsibilities to medical students, residents, peers, and other learners, as well as clinical, research or other professional activities and relationships. There are several Greenville Health System and University of South Carolina policies that cover different aspects of these commitments (see below). 

Canvas, our online learning community, enables us to provide dynamic, connected educational experiences. The cloud-hosted learning management system (LMS) allows USCSOM Greenville instructors and students to deliver course materials, submit assignments and tests, view grades, and create learning activities. Additional features include full-featured mobile Apps for both iOS and Android, a global calendar, and tools that enable two-way communications between instructor and students including text, video, audio, and attachments.
