Building on the initial framework of the South Georgia Medical Education and Research
Consortium and identifying multiple hospitals in the region, PCOM followed the recommendation
of Sasaki Associates, Inc., an international consulting firm tasked with choosing
the best location in the Southwest Georgia region for a new medical program. With
its availability of clerkship opportunities for third- and fourth-year medical students,
central location, affordable housing and convenience to student services and facilities,
Moultrie was a sound choice.
