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 is one of the nation’s largest medical schools by class size, with 260 students per
class. The 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 and fellows in 50 different Accreditation Council
for Graduate Medical Education-approved 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
