The Northwest Campus was announced in 2010.

Even prior to its opening in 2013, MCG students had historically spent four- to six-week rotations studying internal medicine and pediatrics alongside physicians at Rome’s famed Harbin Clinic.

With the opening of the residential campus, students now spend most of their clinically-intensive third and fourth years with physicians in Rome and throughout Northwest Georgia. The campus focuses on a longitudinal integrated curriculum, an emerging medical education model that stresses patient-centered care and tends to produce more primary care physicians.
