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 the 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.
