A Calling Like No Other

Why Augusta?

As Georgia’s only Health Sciences Center of Excellence, students have the chance to apply for the BS-MD or BS-DMD programs as well as follow pre-professional programs that prepare them for continuing their academic journey.

An emphasis on research means graduates leave the program with the practical lab and field experience employers and graduate schools are looking for.

A new building in the heart of the Health Sciences Campus puts Cell and Molecular biology students in the middle of the university’s research enterprise, maximizing opportunities for internships and mentorships.
