The Medical College of Georgia
at Georgia Regents University
What started in 1828 in two borrowed rooms in Augusta, Georgia's old City Hospital has only just begun.
The expanse of the state of Georgia’s only public medical school spans from its founding in 1828 as one of the nation’s first medical schools to its current role optimizing health care in Georgia and beyond through education, discovery and service.
The Medical College of Georgia, the founding school of Georgia Regents University, offers clinical training in approximately 100 sites across the state offering the full spectrum of medicine, from tertiary/quaternary care hospitals to small-town solo practices. The experience is anchored by MCG’s main campus in Augusta as well as regional clinical campuses for third- and fourth-year students and a four-year campus in Athens in partnership with the University of Georgia.
Research initiatives focus on illnesses that affect most Georgians and Americans, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity/diabetes. The sustained growth and productivity of the past decade is helping transform health in areas as diverse as childhood obesity, sickle cell disease and surgical recovery.
MCG’s clinical service homes in on the diverse needs of the state and nation as well, offering everything from frontline wellness care to complex care for the sickest adults and children. MCG’s faculty share their expertise with physicians and patients at about 80 clinics and hospitals statewide and utilize technology, developed at MCG, to virtually travel to the bedside of stroke patients.
As we stand in the early years of the new millennium, we are faced with incredible health concerns and disparity of health care delivery in Georgia. The Medical College of Georgia stands poised to lead. And with over 100 new faculty recruits over the past two years, the Medical College of Georgia is in position to transform medicine at MCG and maximize the potential of new technology coupled with the knowledge to benefit the people of Georgia and beyond.
However, the Medical College of Georgia must attain ample funding to ensure that we take our leadership position among the country’s great public academic health centers. We must pursue funding for student scholarships, faculty endowments, programs and facilities.
