An eye on med-ed


Graduate students in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication are documenting the first years of the medical partnership between UGA and the Georgia Health Sciences University (formerly the Medical College of Georgia) through a series of written stories, photographs and video. The Med School Project is being conducted by students studying with Partricia Thomas, Grady College Knight Chair in Health and Medical Journalism. The students began their work in August 2010, after the first class of medical students arrived in Athens, videotaping interviews and activities involving students, faculty and the Athens community. Currently there are two classes of medical students studying on the Athens campus.
