What students are saying:

“This class was by far one of the best I've experienced during my time at MUSC. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be as I expand my knowledge in the telehealth space.” – Student, Spring 2023

"This class was well thought out and I learned much more than I anticipated – I even worked at a telehealth startup and I don’t think I was exposed to this much detail there either.” – Student, Spring 2023

“I truly enjoyed the course. This model of healthcare may contribute to leveling the playing field for the “have nots”. I hope to be a resource in my health system in utilizing a Telehealth platform in our underserved communities.” – Student, Spring 2023
