McClennan-Banks Resident Society

The College of Medicine’s under-represented in medicine residents initiated the McClennan-Banks Resident Society, naming the organization for Dr. Alonzo C. McClennan and Nurse Anna DeCosta Banks, who were known for the operation of the first minority hospital in Charleston, SC. The purpose for the society was to enhance diversity within the College of Medicine and connect with the Greater Charleston, SC community through service. The society was recently renamed the MUSC/McClennan-Banks Resident Society to include under-represented in medicine residents, networking opportunities with community physicians, and community service projects. The group also serves as mentors to College of Medicine under-represented in medicine students.

Organizational Objectives:

  • Provide an opportunity for campus and community-based networking.
  • Provide mentorship of under-represented students, residents, and fellows
  • Develop residents’ teaching skills
  • Increase minority resident recruitment to the Medical University of South Carolina
  • Cultivate interest in academic medicine
  • Engage in community service
