The Medical College of Georgia’s Office of Student and Multicultural Affairs (OSMA) is dedicated to developing a diverse, culturally competent and empathetic physician workforce and providing an environment that fosters cultural understanding, cultural competency, and opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds. We offer programs and initiatives for students who are underrepresented in medicine, non-traditional, and from underserved regions of the state.
