The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville is transforming medical education.

It is an inspiring message. We share it in what we write, say and portray about the medical school in publications, presentations, and in traditional and social media. However, varied messages and disparate graphics can make it difficult to show what the USC School of Medicine Greenville represents and how we are fulfilling our vision.

The medical school’s communications office is dedicated to helping our faculty, staff, students and others communicate messages consistently and professionally. Our staff has the resources and tools to assist with a variety of communications needs:

  • Public relations
  • Message development
  • Publications
  • Newsletters
  • Internal communications
  • Photography and videos (including portraits)
  • Health Sciences Education Building digital signage
  • Website updates
  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr)
  • Transforming Med School blog
  • Graphic design


Media Relations
The medical school shares its news with traditional and academic media on a local, state and national level. To ensure a consistent voice and message, media relations are managed by the communications staff.

If you have a story idea or news to share with an external media outlet, please contact a member of the USC School of Medicine Greenville’s communications staff. We will work with you develop the appropriate media plan.

If a member of the media contacts you directly, please refer the inquiry to the communications staff. We will work with you to provide the appropriate information to the media representative.


Branding Materials
As part of the University of South Carolina family, the medical school adheres to USC brand standards. The university system offers comprehensive information, guidance and resources on branding, including fonts, colors, templates for print and electronic marketing, and more. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to review the many resources available via the USC Branding Toolbox.

Contact the communications staff with any questions or specific needs for custom materials.
