Medical Center of Central Georgia
The partnership of The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) located in Macon and the Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM), which began with the construction of MUSM in 1982, has led to a pattern of excellence in graduate medical education. The MUSM Educational Center at MCCG, constructed in 1982, provides space for medical education activities, and contains the office of the MUSM Associate Dean for Graduate and Continuing Medical Education/MCCG Director of Medical Education. For coordination between MCCG and MUSM, the MCCG Medical Director also serves as MUSM Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs. With this degree of cooperation, a strong university medical center environment has been established that has benefited medical students, residency programs and the MUSM faculty, both clinical and basic science.
