Residency Appointments


Class of 2021

Ninety-nine students from the the UofSC School of Medicine Columbia matched into residency programs during Match 2021. We offer our congratulations to all of our students, and we know that they will continue their successes in the years to come.

Once again, a number of our students will be staying close to home, with 23 students staying at Prisma Health for residency, and a total of 29 students staying in South Carolina. Our students also matched in many strong programs throughout the eastern U.S., including Duke, Wake Forest, Yale, Mayo Clinic, and Brown University, to name a few.  As in prior years, the percentage of our students pursuing residencies in primary care specialties is above national averages (44% vs. 39% nationally). Other specialties highly represented in the UofSC SOM Columbia Match results include Emergency Medicine (13%), General Surgery (7%), and Radiology (6%).
