Welcome!  Thank you for your interest in The Medical College of Georgia (MCG) Internal Medicine Residency Program at Augusta University Health System.

We are the state of Georgia's only public academic medical center.

Here, our 70+ residents are provided a diverse clinical experience at our 520 bed AU Health hospital, 80 general and specialty-care clinics, as well as the 155 bed Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center and clinics.  The educational and working environment is trainee focused and includes learning from direct patient care, bedside rounds, daily didactics, morning report, quality improvement, quality improvement and safety initiatives, and board review. 

Our dedicated teaching faculty and the medium size of the residency program, lends itself to camaraderie and collegiality amongst the residents and faculty.   Residents participate in dedicated in-patient and out-patient experiences to allow attention and continuity. There are numerous opportunities for electives and research.  Our trainees have success achieving their career goals of pursuing fellowships, academic medicine, or private practice.

Our Mission

The mission of the MCG Internal Medicine residency training program is to produce compassionate, competent physicians that are prepared for fellowship or independent practice and who provide high-quality, ethical, moral, and cost efficient patient care.  

This is accomplished through excellence in teaching, discovery, clinical care, and service.  Residents care for individuals who have diverse disease states from varied socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds in both the in-patient and ambulatory settings.  We provide an environment and culture of quality care, patient safety, collegiality and physician well-being.  Our purpose is to inspire curiosity and systematic investigation while providing residents the tools necessary for their future professional and personal success and to instill the need for habitual life-long learning that is required in the vocation of a physician. 


  1. Equip residents with patient care abilities, professionalism, interpersonal communication skills, understanding of system-based practice, and appreciation of practice based learning to participate in successful clinical practice or fellowship after residency.
  2. Instill residents with medical knowledge through clinical training in a variety of environments, rigorous didactics and discussion, and continuous self-directed lifelong learning.
  3. Empower residents with the clinical skills, research productivity and faculty mentorship necessary to be competitive for top fellowship training positions or preferred practice choices.
