Welcome new residents

2020-2021 resident class

We are excited to share details on the incoming classes for our MUSC Psychiatry, Neurology/Psychiatry, and Internal Medicine/Psychiatry residency programs. It’s a very strong group with diverse backgrounds from medical schools nationwide.

This year, a record number of medical school seniors in the United States applied for psychiatry spots nationally. Out of 1,261 applications for psychiatry at MUSC, 839 are Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) seniors, which is an all-time high. The Med/Psych and Neuro/Psych programs both had a record number of applications.

There is clearly a new landscape in graduate medical education (GME) applications. On average, students in the U.S. are applying to 40 programs and interviewing at more than 15. We are very excited to welcome the top candidates to our MUSC family!
