Medical College will learn in June if it can expand to Athens, GA

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2009

The Medical College of Georgia will learn this month whether it received permission from a national accrediting agency to open a campus in Athens to help meet the state's demand for more physicians. The Liaison Committee on Medical Education will decide whether the Medical College's School of Medicine can expand its entering class by 40 students starting in August 2010. Georgia ranks 39th in the nation in the number of doctors per resident, according to the Georgia Board of Physician Workforce.
