Students on the Greenville Health System campuses who are enrolled in the USC College of Medicine and Nurse Anesthetist Program and USC or MUSC College of Pharmacy may receive EAP services provided by the GHS EAP.
Employee and Student Service Programs are designed as a resource to address personal concerns that impact or may impact productivity, health, and well being. These services focus on healthy lifestyle choices, resolving emotional difficulties, improving interpersonal skills, reinforcing self care habits, and addressing environmental problems such as financial difficulties. It is recognized that preparing for a career of service is challenging, and everyone at some point in time could benefit from these services.
Simply by calling EAP, students can check eligibility for services. Confidential assistance is available to students on an individual basis and with their significant others and dependents. Services offered through EAP cover many types of counseling and referrals. Be assured that confidentiality is mandated by federal and state laws and regulations. EAP counselors strive to protect the rights and privacy of all clients and abide by ethical guidelines. No information is released without written permission unless there is a threat of harm to self or others or release is mandated by law. Counselors are licensed professionals who do not participate as instructors in medical education activities.
The EAP offices are located at Greenville Memorial Medical Center and Patewood Memorial Medical Campus for convenient access and privacy. Appointments can be scheduled from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm most week days simply by calling (864) 455-2360.
Eligible students receive counseling services provided directly by the EAP staff at no charge, generally up to 6-12 sessions per academic year based on the agreement made by their academic department. Students whose problem or situation requires more sessions or whose care needs are outside the expertise of the EAP staff may incur additional charges and/or referral to additional services.
