About Us

The Department of Family Medicine (DFM) in the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) at Augusta University is seeking a Clinician Educator to support its teaching, scholarship, and service programs in response to anticipated growth in undergraduate medical education class size, the Family Medicine Residency Program, and Augusta University Health primary care clinical services.  The DFM’s Clinician Educators provide academic support in all years of MCG’s curriculum.

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.
