The impact of the state of Georgia's only public medical school spans from its founding nearly 200 years ago, in 1828, as one of the nation's first medical schools to its current role optimizing health and health care in Georgia and beyond through education, discovery and service.

The Medical College of Georgia educational experience is anchored by the main campus in Augusta, regional clinical campuses for third- and fourth-year students across the state and a second four-year campus in Athens in partnership with the University of Georgia. MCG’s expanding partnerships with physicians and hospitals across Georgia currently provides about 350 sites where students can experience the full spectrum of medicine, from complex care hospitals to small-town solo practices. MCG and its teaching hospitals also provide postgraduate education to more than 500 residents in 51 different programs.

Our researchers and clinicians focus on what most impacts the health of Georgia's and America’s children and adults, including cardiovascular biology and disease, cancer, neurosciences and behavioral sciences, public and preventive health, regenerative and reparative medicine, personalized medicine and genomics. Our physician faculty also share their expertise with physicians and patients at about 100 clinics and hospitals statewide.

National veteran dataset will help dissect mental illness, prostate cancer connections

There appears to be an unhealthy synergy between mental illness and prostate cancer, and researchers are working to dissect the relationship by first assembling the largest dataset ever of veterans with either condition or both.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Tailor-made medical education

Ultrasound Teaching

The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University is redesigning its four-year core MD curriculum to three years to enable students to better tailor-make their fourth-year learning experience.

The redesign, which should be completed in time for students beginning medical school in the 2021/22 academic year, provides a more efficient pathway into primary care for a percentage of students. The majority of students will spend the fourth year of medical school honing clinical and research skills or completing a dual degree.

The MCG 3+ Primary Care Pathway would see a percentage of students who commit to primary care practice in rural or underserved Georgia, graduate in three years and immediately enter a residency in either family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology or general surgery. Dependent on future funding, those students would receive free tuition and/or student loan forgiveness.

Another option for students with the new curriculum will be to use their fourth year to earn a dual degree, like the university’s MD/MBA or MD/MPH. The final option would enable students to use their fourth year for advanced clinical training and/or research in their chosen future career specialty.
