Each state has its own licensing board with its own medical licensure requirements. Consequently, although the Doctor of Medicine Program at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine is fully accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), thereby making its graduates eligible for professional licensure in the state of South Carolina, you must complete the process and requirements for professional licensure in the state of your residency. For students who are not living and completing residency in South Carolina, the following link provides information regarding medical licensure specific to individual states throughout the U.S.
If a current student is considering relocating to another state after being admitted into the Doctor of Medicine program, the student may contact the Director of Enrollment Services to discuss how the move may impact their ability to participate in academic courses and clinical rotations in a different state.
