Welcome from President Elizabeth S. Haile, M.D., Class of 2004
Dear Alumni and Friends,
I have spent several years serving the School of Medicine Alumni Board since graduating in 2004. Each year, I continue to learn more about the exciting programs being developed at the School of Medicine as well as the challenges those in medical education face. The administration works hard to address issues such as the rising cost of medical education and establishing quality sites for medical training while maintaining the special atmosphere that welcomed so many of us through its doors, whether it was over 30 years ago or four years ago.
It is an exciting time at the School of Medicine as we start a new chapter with a new dean and an expanded footprint into the Pee Dee Area of South Carolina. We are able to train more physicians while providing improved access to medical care. The training sites developed in partnership with McLeod Regional Medical Center and Carolinas Hospital System will still allow students to experience the personalized medical education that is lacking at so many other schools. This is one innovative example of how our School continues to thrive in a time when the future of medicine is changing and often is uncertain. The various educational, clinical and research departments continue to accomplish great things and have increased our community and economic impact on South Carolina.
As medical practitioners, we have a duty to serve our patients and the communities in which we practice. As alumni, we have a duty to serve the School of Medicine in any capacity that we can, whether it be through monetary donations that help fund scholarships and endowments, giving time and talent to educational programs, networking to increase our visibility, or simply showing your support for our school at a tailgate, reunion, or Black Tie/White Coat Gala.
I am honored to be a graduate of the USC School of Medicine and feel privileged to serve as your Alumni Association President during the next year. I implore you to make an effort to get involved with the Alumni Association and be a part of the School of Medicine’s legacy.
Elizabeth S. Haile, M.D.
