Joseph Burch

I am sure none of us had any concept of the effect a small RNA virus could have on our lives. As physicians, we have experienced some of the most life-changing effects of COVID-19 as any group in America. Through these uncertain times, I have been both scared but also emboldened to have been given an opportunity to make a difference in my community and deliver essential health care. It’s what we were all trained to do at the Medical College of Georgia. Read more »

Stethoscopes for First-Year Students


You should have recently received a letter regarding the MCG Stethoscope Program that provides a MCG branded stethoscope to first-year medical students.

Due to dozens of donations from alumni, faculty and friends, the Medical College of Georgia Alumni Association was able to provide stethoscopes for every freshman medical student last year and we hope to do the same for our incoming Class of 2025. For many medical students, receiving their first stethoscope is the first tangible sign that their dream of becoming a physician is coming true. The response from our future colleagues was overwhelming appreciation and gratitude.

This is an amazing opportunity to impact a students’ life at the beginning of this special journey to becoming a physician.

What better way to welcome the Class of 2025, than providing them with MCG branded stethoscopes, accompanied by a note of encouragement from you, to symbolize the bond they you both will always share with MCG.

Please click below to impact an MCG student’s life forever. Stethoscopes are $250 each.

In gratitude,

Associate Vice President for Alumni Engagement

P.S. I have already purchased 4 stethoscopes and I hope you will join me in supporting this program!
