In 2003 the College of Medicine launched a major recruitment effort for under-represented in medicine (URM) residents. That effort, which involved the Graduate Medical Education office and multiple directors and faculty, has been successful: in the last 10 years, the percentage of URM residents has more than tripled (3% to over 9%).
The Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery applauds this effort and is proud to have participated (see below – “URM Opportunities”). Our Department also supports the College’s ongoing efforts to promote cultural understanding and cultural competency, and to mentor URM residents and fellows.
In addition to the regular application process for the elective rotation, a one page summary of future career plans is requested.
On behalf of all of our faculty, I thank you for considering MUSC as a potential residency program.
