Equity is Essential

South Carolinians deserve to have physicians who look like them and can relate to them. Almost 22% of our students are from underrepresented populations. Diversity, equity and inclusion efforts are incredibly important to us, and we are intentional about cultivating team building and community.

Once certified, you’ll work as an EMT  on ambulances, in the emergency department and at community events. These in-the-field experiences build your skills and link classroom learning to real-world clinical care.
