Dr. William McCuen has joined North Greenville College as College and Community Physician. He will serve as the college physician to oversee student health needs as well as offer his services to the community residents seeking medical care.
In addition to overseeing student medical needs, Dr. McCuen will develop a student health program which will offer clinics on wellness. These clinics will address abstinence from drugs, alcohol, and tobacco products, staying fit, and other issues relating to wellness.
Dr. McCuen has practiced Internal Medicine in the Greenville area since 1955. He and his wife, Anne King McCuen, reside in Greenville. They are parents of seven children.
He attended Furman University where he obtained his B.S. degree in 1949. He taught Biology at NGC from 1948 to 1950. He then continued his studies at Bowman Gray Medical School and graduated in 1954 as a Doctor of Internal Medicine. His internship was at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO. Beside practicing Internal Medicine in the Greenville area, he had a short stint (from 1963-65) with the Central Intelligence Agency in Scientific Intelligence, Life Sciences Division.
When asked what motivated him to consider a practice in the Tigerville community, Dr. McCuen responded, “We have a second home about three miles from the campus and many of the community people have been private patients of mine through the years. I have a great fondness for NGC and felt this would be a good opportunity to make a difference for the college and community.”
Dr. McCuen will be in his office on the NGU campus in Tuttle Clinic each morning, Monday through Friday.
