About Us

The Department of Family Medicine (DFM) in the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) at Augusta University is seeking clinician educators to support its strategic expansion of teaching, service, and scholarship programs in primary care and Family Medicine.   This expansion is in response to anticipated growth in the university’s UME and Family Medicine GME programs as well as the Augusta University Health System’s investment in primary care and Family Medicine in a variety of academic and service settings. The DFM’s Clinician Educators provide academic support in all years of MCG’s curriculum. Faculty course involvement includes preclinical electives and interdisciplinary required courses and a six-week Family Medicine distributed clerkship. The department also sponsors hospital and ambulatory, research, public and population health, and vulnerable population electives. 

The DFM has an ACGME accredited Allopathic Family Medicine Residency Program, an ACGME accredited 1+2 rural track residency program, and a concurrent AOA accredited Osteopathic Family Medicine residency component. The residency program is also supported by teaching affiliations with the local not-for-profit University Health Care System along with other regional partners.

Clinical teaching and services occur concurrently in the Family Medicine Center (FMC) and at Augusta University Medical Center within the AU Health System as well as other affiliated local and regional clinical sites. The FMC is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. Patient-and Family-Centered Care concepts are the guiding principles for new clinical program development in the university’s academic health center as exemplified by its Children’s Hospital of Georgia.
