Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), one of the fastest growing health systems in the state, based in one of the fastest growing counties in the state, is perfectly positioned for residents to live, work and play. NGMC Graduate Medical Education RESIDENCY PROGRAMS offer a unique opportunity for the healthcare leaders of tomorrow to begin creating their healthcare legacy today.
Physician residents train under experienced and passionate faculty with a commitment to team-based education to promote personal and professional development. NGMC GME residents will make a difference in the life of each patient they treat due to our culture of continuous improvement, consistent growth, cutting edge technology and breakthrough ideas.
The hospital expects the program to grow to as many as 200 residents by 2024, which would make the program one of the largest in the state. This is good news for the physician workforce in Georgia, since the Georgia Board of Physician Workforce estimates that medical students from Georgia who complete medical school and a GME program in Georgia have a roughly 80-percent chance of staying in the state to practice. The GME program is expected to drive more than $66 million into Hall County’s economy from 2019-2023 and add an additional $18 million in local economic impact for each year thereafter.
“Our goal is to go one step further and keep the best-of-the-best right here in our community,” says Carol Burrell, president and CEO of Northeast Georgia Health System. “Helping train the next generation of doctors is just another way we achieve our mission of improving the health of our community in all we do.”
