Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 16, 2009
The Medical College of Georgia received permission from a national accreditation agency to move ahead with plans to open a campus in Athens. The campus is scheduled to open in August 2010, and college officials will begin accepting applications later this month, spokeswoman Toni Baker said. The Liaison Committee on Medical Education sent a letter saying planning is on track to admit 40 students to the Medical College of Georgia/University of Georgia Partnership Campus in Athens. The two colleges are working together to expand medical education programs.
