International Travel Assistance and Travel Registration
MUSC has entered into a contract with International SOS to provide security and medical evacuation services, assistance with hospital referrals, repatriation insurance and a variety of online health, safety, and security resources for the university community traveling abroad on university business or sponsored activities.
All faculty, staff, trainees and students traveling abroad for University-related purposes are required to register their travel itinerary with International SOS before the expected departure date. Registration provides information that will enable the University to activate intervention services on the traveler’s behalf in the event of a health emergency, natural disaster, or a crisis of civil or political unrest in a foreign location that requires assistance or evacuation.
