The Medical University of South Carolina (the “University”) is engaged around the world through education activities, research and service of its faculty, staff, trainees and students. The University supports and encourages international travel and collaborations and recognizes that a global perspective is essential to its academic mission. In January 2014, the University implemented an international travel policy intended to promote the health, safety and security of all members of the MUSC community while traveling abroad. Colleges or business units may have additional procedures and requirements that support this overall policy. This policy applies to faculty, staff, trainees and students traveling outside of the United States for University-related purposes, and sets the requirements that must be met before and during university-related travel. *For the full version of the policy, please refer to MUSC International Travel Policy (PDF).
