GREENVILLE, SC (AP) -

The University of South Carolina is opening a new medical school campus in Greenville with a charter class of 53 students.

University spokesman Wes Hickman says a ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday.

The school is a partnership between USC and the Greenville Hospital System and becomes one of 136 in the nation.

Hickman says a hallmark of the school is a curriculum designed to educate physicians knowledgeable about America's rapidly evolving health care delivery system.

The school is only one of two in the nation that requires students to complete emergency medical technician training and is only one of a few to be located on the campus of a public health system.
