This alliance of two of Georgia's most prominent universities combined with a supportive medical community has created an unparalleled opportunity for the education of future physicians in Georgia. However, much more needs to be done to attract the best and brightest students, especially given escalating tuition and today's challenging economic climate.
The White Coat Scholarship Initiative works to increase medical school scholarships in order to attract talented students while also removing the burden of student debt, which can discourage students, especially those of limited financial means, from entering the medical profession. For those who do enter and complete medical school, high levels of student debt are a disincentive to serve in medically underserved areas or to choose specialties where the need is greatest, such as primary care. We need your help to ensure that financial obstacles don't deter students from serving a state with an urgent need for more physicians.
