Medical College of Georgia - Office of Admissions
Associate Dean's Welcome
Thank you for considering the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University. As the third-oldest medical school in the Southeast we are proud of our history and excited about our future.
We are the state of Georgia's only public medical school and are committed to educating physicians who will lead the state of Georgia and the world to better health by providing excellence in biomedical education, discovery, and practice.
This is a particularly exciting time to be at Georgia Regents University as Georgia Health Sciences University has merged with another historic institution, Augusta State University, to form a new, comprehensive research university with an aligned and integrated health system. This consolidation is taking place at a critical time in healthcare for the state. Our patient population is increasing in size and growing more complex and diverse.
Meeting this challenge demands the most exceptional and talented students to train to become our next generation of outstanding physicians and world-class researchers. It also requires that our physician workforce be as diverse as the population it serves, culturally and socioeconomically. We seek students who are committed to academic excellence and Georgia Regents University's core values of collaboration, compassion, diversity, excellence, innovation, integrity, and leadership.
As the second-largest city in Georgia, Augusta is a wonderful place to live and its location in East Central Georgia puts it within easy driving distance of cities like Atlanta, GA, Columbia, SC and Charlotte, NC, as well as the beach and the mountains.
As your admissions office team, we stand ready to serve you as you begin your journey into healthcare. We are your first point of contact with MCG; we strive to meet all your needs and to answer your questions promptly and thoroughly.
No matter where you are in your educational path, our office is available to answer any questions you may have about the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University and about the admissions process.
All the best,
Gina N. Duncan, M.D.
