Campus Assistant Dean for Curriculum
MCG - Southwest Georgia Campus
The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) School of Medicine is pursuing the phased expansion of its medical class size in response to Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) guidance and state physician manpower needs. The current strategy involves the growth of the medical school class in Augusta from 190 to 230 students, the establishment of regional residential clinical campuses for 3rd and 4th year students in Southeast, Southwest and Northwest Georgia, and the development of a 4-year "expansion" campus in Athens Georgia in partnership with University of Georgia.
The focal point of this regionally distributed 'hub & spoke' medical education network is the office of the dean. The concomitant goals of assuring educational equivalence, enhancing faculty quality and embracing innovative teaching methodologies require significant curricular and programmatic coordination between the parent and separated campuses.
The campus assistant dean for curriculum of the Southwest campus will add to the Medical College of Georgia dean's staff "presence" on the Southwest GA Clinical Campus. The hub of the campus is in Albany with key teaching areas in Tifton, Valdosta, Thomasville, Columbus and Cordele. The assistant dean for curriculum will report directly to the MCG-SW Campus Assistant Dean and work closely with the Associate Dean for Regional Campus Coordination.
