Each year, our mission is to seat the best possible class of future physicians to meet the growing healthcare needs of every man, woman, and child in Georgia and beyond. We conduct a holistic review of each candidate and seek students who are academically strong, compassionate, demonstrate intellectual curiosity, are willing to serve an underserved population and uphold the highest ethical and moral standards. We expect each and every graduate to serve as a leader in healthcare and an ambassador for the University and the more than 10,000 living alumni.
As a Georgia native and graduate of the Medical College of Georgia for both my medical education and residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology, I am proud to call the Medical College of Georgia home. It is our hope that you too will find a home at the Medical College of Georgia.
