Resident Selection

Each program selects from eligible applicants on the basis of program-related criteria, such as preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills and personal qualities such as motivation and integrity. Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor visas (including J-1 or H1-B) at this time.

The Tidelands Health MUSC Family Medicine Residency Program training programs will not discriminate with regard to sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability or any other applicable legally protected status.

The National Resident Matching Program system is the highest priority in resident selection. Residents obtained post-match, through SOAP, are selected on the same criteria as above. Each individual residency program has specific policies governing post-graduate physician trainee selection based on this policy, the RRC guidelines and Tidelands Health-Equal Employment Opportunity Policy, which governs all entities. It is the responsibility of the residency program director to screen candidates using these policies and program.
