Mercer University School of Medicine to Expand to Full Four-Year Campus in Columbus
Tuesday, May 21, 2019
Mercer University School of Medicine (MUSM) at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce formally announced expansion of the School’s two-year Columbus campus to a full four-year campus.
“This important initiative originated with leaders in the Columbus community, who successfully carried it to fruition by garnering the support of the State of Georgia and Mercer University. The new campus will provide desperately needed physicians for the entire state, but especially Columbus and Southwest Georgia. We are proud to partner with Columbus and the State to address this need,” said Mercer President William D. Underwood.
The expansion is backed by operational funding from the state, as well as generous support from the Columbus community that will allow renovations to begin later this year on a downtown facility housing new classrooms, labs and office space.
