It's Official: Med School Partnership Formalized

According to today's Atlanta Business Chronicle, the UGA-MCG medical school partnership is now formalized. Not sure what exactly this means, but it sure seems like good news for medical education in Georgia.

As MCG and the Regents continue to add more medical programs in other areas of the state, we at the Athens Inbox hope that the Athens expansion (and plans to add more graduates and a dental school in Augusta) can be a winning template for Georgia to grow more of its own doctors in the future, which is of critical importance to keeping our best and brightest home, and luring a few of the best and brightest from other states as well.
