History of the Medical College of Georgia


Future

The Medical College of Georgia continues to grow in the twenty-first century as it embraces the mission of improving health and reducing the burden of illness in society. To achieve this goal, MCG is focusing on five areas of thematic research: cancer, infection & inflammation, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes/obesity, and neurological diseases. The institution plans to increase research funds by 20% per year and move all schools to the upper half of respective peer groups within 5 years. MCG also plans to continue to recruit a more diverse faculty and student body.

MCGs Master plan includes two more buildings in the near future, the Cancer Research Center and Health Sciences Building. The Cancer Research Center will become the home of the Augusta Cancer Center of Excellence. The Health Science building, projected to start in the fall of 2003, will house the School of Allied Health Sciences and the School of Nursing. MCG also envisions creating a biotechnology research park with the Georgia Medical Center Authority. These improvements will help MCG achieve its vision of becoming one of the nations premier health sciences universities.
