By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A new clinical campus in Southwest Georgia will help produce more doctors in the state.

Wednesday at Phoebe Putney Hospital the ribbon was cut at the first Medical College of Georgia Clinical Campus site.

The Southwest Georgia Clinical Campus is state of the art and is housed in the old Albany Middle School.

It has more than one hundred thousand dollars of equipment to conduct live classes from the main campus in Augusta.

For now 17 third year medical students will study at the Albany facility.

"They started the first week of July they're already doing clerkships in Albany and surrounding area, I met several students here to day they seem pretty happy," said Dr. Doug Miller, MCG School of Medicine Dean.

This campus will cover areas from Valdosta to La Grange.

MCG plans to open a UGA-Athens campus later this year and others in Savannah, Brunswick, and Rome in the future.
