The Department of Population Health Sciences at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University was established in 2017 to strengthen the public medical school’s impact on the health of Georgia.

The broader mission of the department is to understand, preserve and improve the health human populations through research, training and community engagement, especially focusing on the health of Georgians. It will enable scientists and educators to pursue and share a more comprehensive perspective on who are getting sick, what they have and why, and which targeted interventions and treatments are most effective for them.
