The primary mission of the Citadel Infirmary is to provide medical care to The Citadel Corps of Cadets during the regular academic year. (The Infirmary does not treat CGC students.) The Infirmary is staffed on that basis and operates on a 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week schedule during the time the Corps of Cadets is on campus. The Citadel Infirmary professional staff consists of one full-time physician, one part-time physician, one nurse practitioner, and seven registered nurses. In addition, the physicians are able to consult with a host of specialists in the Charleston area.
