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 health research and scholarship. Clemson has collaborated with Furman University, the Greenwood Genetic Center, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), Prisma Health, and the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. Through these partnerships, 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.
