The Medical Partnership’s vision, mission and values

Over the past several months, the Medical Partnership's faculty and staff have defined its vision, mission and values. Through collaboration and support from our community partners, the Medical Partnership will continue to provide high quality, innovative education to our students and residents with this vision ever in mind....

In July, the AU/UGA Medical Partnership reached another milestone as the Athens Class of 2016 began Phase 3 (the clinical years) of their medical education. We now have approximately 80, third and fourth year medical students completing clinical rotations throughout Athens and Northeast Georgia.  The students are able to train in Athens because of clinical faculty, such as yourself, that have agreed to supervise a medical student in your office and/or on your hospital service.  Clinical education allows the student to enhance and hone their skills in history taking and physical examination as well as develop their diagnostic acumen.

Community physicians are the backbone of the clinical education component for our Medical Partnership campus.  Your accumulated knowledge and skills are passed on to the student through every patient encounter.  It’s through the discussion of patient cases, and role modeling, that students learn.  Thank you.  We appreciate all you do for the students, for medical education and the profession of medicine.

Sincerely yours,

Michelle A. Nuss, MD, FACP
Campus Dean
