Event Medicine

Welcome to the Division of Event Medicine, a specialty section of the Medical University of South Carolina’s Prehospital Emergency Services.  We provide medical services to a wide range of events around the Lowcountry, including professional, amateur, and tough man boxing, professional mixed martial arts, and professional roller derby events.  For the past several years, the Division has provided expert medical support to thousands of athletes participating in the world famous Cooper River Bridge Run.  We provided the event physician to the Amgen Tour of California.  The Division of Event Medicine, through its Director, has also been providing exclusive VIP medical services to numerous celebrities when performing here in Charleston, including Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Tim McGraw, Maxwell, The Van’s Warped Tour performers, and The Goo-Goo Dolls, amongst many others.

If you feel we can be of service to you or your event, please do not hesitate to call our director or our department.  We look forward to serving you and your event.
