Academic Affiliations

Opportunities abound at Harbin Clinic to teach and mentor medical students. Harbin Clinic physicians have the opportunity and option to serve as preceptors with numerous medical schools.   

The Georgia Regents University Northwest Campus of the Medical College of Georgia opened in 2013. Harbin’s reputation across the state and our cooperation with local hospital leadership and the Medical College of Georgia was a main factor that led GRU to choose the Rome campus and Harbin Clinic physicians as a satellite campus. Students are taught using a longitudinal integrated curriculum, an emerging medical education model that emphasizes patient-centered care.

GRU/MCG students typically spend four to six-week rotations studying internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, neurology, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology.  Students at the Rome Campus will now spend the majority of their third and fourth years with Harbin physicians and a few other physicians throughout Northwest Georgia. 

Harbin has a solid relationship with Mercer Medical School and their Physician Assistant (PA) program.  Our physicians accept first through fourth-year medical students for their Community Medicine rotation. 

Harbin also has an excellent relationship with Emory’s PA  and Nurse Practioner program, and our physicians and Advance Practice Providers accept their students.

The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and Morehouse School of Medicine are two other Georgia schools for which we provide learning experiences for their students.

Harbin Clinic is always willing to initiate affiliation agreements with medical schools upon the request of a physician.
