The Medical Partnership students are honored and grateful to have the opportunity to serve the underserved community in Athens through their own clinic held in partnership with Mercy Health Center.
The GRU/UGA Medical Partnership continues to grow and develop as its fourth class of students prepares to begin classes in August 2013 - and its first class prepares to graduate in May 2014.
Good doctors recognize that their patients' health is not merely defined by biology. By taking learning out of the classroom and into the community, students benefit from learning about other influences in their patients' lives.
In July 2012, the GRU/UGA Medical Partnership moved to the 58-acre UGA Health Sciences Campus near downtown Athens.
