Affiliations

The Residency Programs at Piedmont Athens Regional is affiliated with the Augusta University/University of Georgia (AU/UGA) Medical Partnership and the University of Georgia’s School of Public Health, Pharmacy, and Social Services.

Augusta University and the University of Georgia have created a four-year medical education program in Athens to help alleviate a statewide shortage of physicians. The AU-UGA Medical Partnership combines the significant instructional and research resources of UGA, the state’s flagship land-grant research university, with the expertise of the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.

In addition to increasing the number of physicians in Georgia, the Medical Partnership works to expand research collaborations between AU and UGA, creating new insights into the prevention and treatment of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
