MCG Dean announces plans to expand classes in Augusta and Athens

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) - - The Medical College of Georgia Dean announced a few changes for the state's only public medical school. Dr. David Hess spoke with a group of medical staff and students Friday.  He said class sizes at both the Augusta and Athens campuses will increase to 260 by the fall of 2020. That means about 10 more students per class at both locations.  Total enrollment will jump to 1,040 by 2024. That will make MCG the sixth largest medical college in the nation.  The dean said he wants the class size to increase to 300 in the next 10 years. 

Dean Hess added, "Class sizes increasing.  They're able to do that because we have 2500 volunteer faculty throughout the state plus all you great faculty here."

You can catch Dr. Hess on The Means Report Sunday afternoon at 5:00 and Monday afternoon at 12:30.
