Through academic partnerships with our primary academic partners University of South Carolina, Clemson University and Furman University, as well as our other affiliate universities, the Greenville Health System (GHS) is excited to provide academic opportunities for undergraduate students interested in health sciences careers.
For more information, please contact the programs listed below.
MedEx Academy is a full immersive summer experience designed for students interested in the health dciences. MedEx provides students with various enriching opportunities from simulation to debates to interview preparation to hospital observation.
Cardiovascular Technology Program
The Cardiovascular Imaging Leadership (CVT) program is offered by Clemson University in partnership with Greenville Health System (GHS). The program provides undergraduate students with a required core of public health, science and leadership classes on Clemson’s campus and technical training in noninvasive cardiovascular technology at the GHS Patewood campus.

Pre-Therapy ExperienceGHS has designed an experience specifically for students preparing for a therapy program (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy). Students can select from a variety of clinical rehabilitation settings at several GHS facilities. While acquiring practical experience, students can also accumulate the hours often required for admission into a therapy degree program.
Students must be currently enrolled in a baccalaureate program, with expectation to advance to a PT, OT, or ST program and must be willing to commit to 40-100 hours. For more information, please visit http://university.ghs.org/pre-therapy/.
InternshipsGHS offers a diverse range of internship opportunities for undergraduate students throughout the year. Internship opportunities range from art therapy and bioengineering to law and pediatrics.
Clinical RotationsClinical Rotations are orchestrated between institutions of higher education and GHS. Students interested in a clinical rotation need to connect with their professors/coordinators at their home institutions. These coordinators must contact the clinical department at GHS directly. Once the clinical rotation and the affiliation is confirmed, the Office of Student Services will contact the student for clearance processes.

ResearchAs a shared academic health center, GHS provides space for students and faculty outside the system to engage in various research projects. However, the best avenue to inquire about such opportunities is directly with a specific GHS faculty member, physician, nurse, scholar, etc. The GHS Office of Student Services does not match students to research opportunities; however, if you have questions and would like to find out more, please contact GHS’ Chief Science Officer, Dr. Windsor Sherrill at email@example.com.
VolunteeringStudents willing to commit to at least 50 hours of volunteer service are invited to apply for volunteer positions in a variety of clinical and non-clinical departments. Individuals may request specific areas, but these requests are not guaranteed. Please note: volunteer opportunities do not provide direct patient care. For more information, please visit http://www.ghs.org/volunteering or contact the Volunteer Services office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other opportunitiesFor anything outside of these programs, please contact Dr. Eli Hestermann, Executive Director of Pre-Professional Studies, at email@example.com. Dr. Hestermann is in charge of all undergraduate academic programming at GHS.
