Representative tours Clinical Campus

Phoebe Putney leaders are promoting programs that help keep new doctors and pharmacists here in South Georgia.

This afternoon, they led House Speaker David Ralston on a tour of the Albany campuses of the Medical College of Georgia and the UGA College of Pharmacy.

They want to highlight the importance of the partnerships that allow students to finish their training here with the hope that they will stay in south Georgia to practice.

Douglas Patten, Sr. VP Medical Affairs says, "One of the benefits of having medical education occur here because people train here they are more likely to return here to practice."

Speaker Ralston is wrapping up a tour of various parts of the state this week.
