Welcome to the Medicine Clerkship!
The next 8 weeks will form the cornerstone for much of your medical career, regardless
of what specialty you ultimately choose. The emphasis of this clerkship is on acquisition of knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors that form the core of internal medicine and are essential for the education of all
physicians. The overall goal is to provide students with a solid foundation in the
comprehensive health care of adults. The settings for the ambulatory rotations include the general medicine practices at
MCG and the VAMC in Augusta and community-based sites across the state. Inpatient
experiences are available at MCG Hospital, the Augusta VA Medical Center, Atlanta
Medical Center, Eisenhower Army Medical Center, Marshes Medical Diagnostic Clinic,
Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, SGHS - PrimeDoc Hospitalist Group and SJCHS - Chatham
All of us in the Department of Medicine look forward to working with you and to helping you both during your rotation and in the future. Please also use the links provided on the left of our page for more information on our regional campuses.
