Medical College of Georgia

The Medical College of Georgia, part of Augusta University, located in Augusta, Georgia's second largest city has a strong commitment to providing an environment to foster research growth in the health sciences.

MCG is creating copyright and technology transfer initiatives to increase intellectual property and patent activity to provide research opportunities for undergraduate students, has a wide array of master’s and doctoral programs, and has a well-staffed International and Postdoctoral Services Office.

MCG's Office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development is a full-service technology transfer office that handles Material Transfer Agreements, Invention Disclosures, Patents, and Licenses. They also manage a new biobusiness incubator…the Life Sciences Business Development Center…in the Interdisciplinary Research Building, with wetlab space, equipment, offices, and mentors available for entrepreneurs.

MCG's clinical service, research and economic impact all make impressive marks on the state of Georgia, but perhaps its most tangible contribution to the state is its student body. Today's students are tomorrow's alumni. Those alumni, the vast majority of who practice in Georgia, are the physicians, dentists, nurses, scientists, technologists and administrators who serve every community in the state.

Education has been the university's highest priority throughout its 175-year history. Every faculty member, every laboratory, every clinical facility ... every facet of the university ... is designed to enhance the education of MCG students.

The result? Graduates with second-to-none skills, expertise, dedication and compassion.
