Welcome to the Clemson University School of Health Research

Better Together

That’s the hallmark of a bold partnership between Clemson University and health care systems that has created the Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR), a multidisciplinary unit of Clemson that facilitates medical research and scholarship. Through this partnership, Clemson brings a wealth of research and educational expertise, and the health care systems offer the clinical opportunities students and researchers need to put their ideas into action. The result? Breakthroughs in health care delivery, access and affordability that make a difference in the doctor’s office, the operating room, and beyond.

Call for CUSHR Faculty Fellows Applications

Faculty Fellows are tenured faculty members who are embedded in a Prisma Health–Upstate department for a semester and summer in order to produce health-related scholarship. Via this appointment, each Fellow is able to shift their focus from their regular teaching duties to developing a comprehensive research agenda with their embedded host department, and serve as a bridge to additional collaborative research. There will be an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 9 in Edwards Hall room 538 at 3 p.m.
