Our Curriculum...

We are a diverse community of learners committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive primary care to the rural and underserved communities of South Georgia through a training program for residents and students that aims to be both rigorous and personally fulfilling.

Our main goal is to train physicians in the full breadth of primary care to serve rural communities in Georgia; yet feel confident that our graduates have both the clinical acumen as well as the independent learning skills to provide basic health care for all people anywhere in the country or around the world.

Central to our program is the incorporation of individuality to each residents training. We have developed a strong, unified didactic experience as well as a unique learning experience beyond the basic required rotations.

We hope to develop our residents into compassionate, well-trained family physicians who can contribute their skills to providing excellent medical care to rural populations. For more information on our Curriculum, please see the charts below:
