“MCG chose me ! I came to MCG as a prelim resident, but the faculty looked at my global potential as a physician and a surgeon and that’s how I found my surgical home!”

“The comradery…I don’t know how to pinpoint it. That 3am delivery dinner an attending brings on a busy trauma call…

“Do you want coffee” text from a resident on a less busy service…

A UFC screening at an interns house, A pool party every other Saturday at a section chiefs place, these things can’t be qualified or quantified in a program survey or a well being evaluation, but for me sums up what’s best about this place.”
