Internal Medicine - Savannah Campus

Steven L. Carpenter, M.D., Academic Chair & Clerkship DirectorI am excited about Internal Medicine education. We constantly strive to strengthen the overall educational experience at our facility and all of the students who participate in our program are certain to benefit. Whether you are a third year medical student just beginning your clerkships, or a fourth year student returning for an elective, we are pleased to have you join us.

In 2008, Mercer University School of Medicine opened its Savannah Campus, located on the property of Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC). This has been an overwhelming success. Our Internal Medicine faculty members are actively involved with the problem-based-learning educational format contributing to the energy, innovative nature and quality of Mercer's educational initiatives.

In recent years, Memorial University Medical Center has experienced tremendous growth. MUMC has a state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Institute that provides inpatient and outpatient physical rehabilitation. The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute at Memorial University Medical Center provides the most advanced cancer care in the region. The new Heart and Vascular Institute includes 54 ICU beds and six digital angiographic suites for cardiology, vascular, and neurovascular efforts. The William and Iffath Hoskins Center for Biomedical Research is a multi-million-dollar facility that houses leading-edge research and education facilities.

Strengths of our program include:

  •     A friendly, motivating, educational environment.
  •     Strong core clinical faculty dedicated to the education experience.
  •     Outstanding outpatient experience in a patient-friendly facility.
  •     Direct access to the faculty at Mercer University School of Medicine.
  •     Location in beautiful, historic, and culturally diverse coastal city.
  •     Hospitalist program tightly aligned with our department.


We look forward to being a part of your educational experience.
