College of Charleston Athletics and Medical University of South Carolina announce integrated, multi-year relationship

September 29, 2020

On the heels of introducing a relationship between College of Charleston (CofC) and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) to provide enhanced overall health care and psychiatric services to CofC students, the affiliation has further expanded to CofC Athletics and is under way now.

MUSC Health immediately assumes the exclusive category designation of being the Cougars’ “Official Health Care Partner”. In addition to providing best-in-class orthopedic and primary sports medicine services to all Cougar student-athletes, MUSC Health now serves as CofC’s team doctors and provides complete physician and medical support.

The strategic relationship with CofC Athletics was secured by Charleston Sports Properties, the Cougars’ multimedia rightsholder and locally based Learfield IMG College team. Charleston Sports Properties will oversee all aspects of the MUSC agreement, which also includes significant visibility for MUSC Health at campus athletics venues TD Arena and Patriots Point.
