COVID-19 Pandemic Support
The MUSC Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences has started a clinic to support the mental health of our MUSC Health providers
Dear CHP alumni and donors,
I hope this message finds you well and adapting to the new normal. The last two months have been challenging for all of us. Our thoughts go out to those who have been deeply impacted by COVID-19. We are thinking of all of you and your health and safety.
As you may be aware, the pandemic brought about major changes at MUSC during the month of April. Unfortunately, many of our colleagues at MUSC Health have been furloughed and many of those still working have been required to take pay cuts. While these organizational changes have created waves across the MUSC community, we feel fortunate that the College of Health Professions (CHP) has been able to continue our operations with minimal impact.
The university announced in April that we would begin a gradual transition to normal operations for the campus in mid-May. However, we have made the decision to hold all summer classes online. We are hoping to welcome all our new students in the residential programs to Charleston in August. Additionally, with the university’s commencement ceremony cancelled for this year, we have rescheduled most of our hooding ceremonies to dates later this summer.
Now, I would like to take a moment to highlight some of the great initiatives in our college.
I am so proud of what is being accomplished within our college, and it could not be done without your support!
