Athens, Georgia is one of the newest locations for medical students to consider their training in Georgia. As noted in its 2008 study of healthcare in Georgia, Tripp Umbach stated that Georgia has "a critical shortage of residency positions." With support from the State of Georgia, the two community hospitals in Athens are pleased to offer options to students wanting to stay in Athens for their residency.
The first residents in Athens arrived during the summer of 2015 with more opportunities becoming available in 2016.
