Georgia Regents University and the University of Georgia have partnered to create a four-year medical education program in Athens to help alleviate a statewide shortage of physicians that threatens the health of Georgians. The first class of medical students in Athens began classes in August 2010. First- and second-year students study basic science and clinical skills in a program that parallels the Augusta curriculum of GRU. Plans are underway for third- and fourth-year clerkships at area clinics and hospitals.
