Perdue backs Athens med campus
By Walter C. Jones | Morris News Service | Story updated at 11:34 PM on Thursday, March 22, 2007
ATLANTA - Gov. Sonny Perdue threw his full support Thursday behind plans to expand the Medical College of Georgia into Athens.
In an interview with Morris News Service, Perdue said the federal government's decision to close the Navy Supply Corps School provided vacant land that sped up planning to deal with an expected doctor shortage.
"I intend to pursue vigorously a satellite campus in Athens, hopefully at the Navy school," he said.
Perdue's comments came in recognition that civic and political leaders in Augusta have lobbied against the Athens expansion, arguing it would divide the strength and prestige of MCG. He said he didn't mean his decision as a slight toward Augusta or an indication that MCG's future there was diminished.
Perdue took the occasion to announce he is proposing $5 million be spent planning to expand MCG's dentistry school in Augusta.
Perdue already requested $3.8 million in next year's budget to plan the Athens med school campus, but Thursday's comments were his most definitive to date.
The governor's public stance in the face of opposition is significant, said University of Georgia political science professor Charles Bullock.
"Our governors have generally gotten everything they want," Bullock said.
The House Appropriations Committee hasn't completed its consideration of next year's budget, so committee members could balk at the Athens med school. Monday, a key member of that committee, state Rep. Bill Hembree, R-Douglasville, told MCG and UGA officials he thinks officials should try harder to keep MCG graduates in Georgia to practice medicine.
Perdue said he favors using targeted admissions and strategies like forgivable student loans to entice more Georgia-educated doctors to remain here.
The state will need more facilities to educate additional doctors.
And, he argued, that the time to act is now.
While the Navy base won't become vacant until 2011, planners will decide long before that what will happen with the land.
Scientific research at UGA, coupled with the potential of having a medical facility in the same town, enticed him, Perdue said.
"It's irrefutable that those two are coming closer and closer together, and there is synergy in doing that," the governor said. "That doesn't exist anywhere else than Athens.
"We certainly weren't in control of the Navy school property. In fact, we fought vigorously to maintain the Navy school there (when the military was deciding which bases to close). However, when it did come available, we felt like it was a unique opportunity," he said.

A firm will get $332,000 to research expanding the campuses of the Medical College of Georgia's School of Medicine - especially in Athens.
Tripp Umbach, a Pittsburgh medical school expansion firm, was selected to develop a five-year plan to increase MCG School of Medicine's class size from 190 to approximately 245 students, according to a news release.Umbach is looking for growth potential mainly in Athens and Augusta, said Douglas Miller, dean of the Medical College of Georgia.The MCG School of Nursing is located in Athens."Athens is a very realistic area for an increase of 40 students," Miller said. "They'll spend a lot of time at UGA to talk to people and see if this is a good place to go."MCG, a state-funded institution, is researching expansion opportunities, along with a national movement of medical colleges, trying to increase class sizes to fill the demand for more doctors."The Association of American Medical Colleges has recommended that [medical] schools need to increase by 30 percent by 2015 in order to accommodate the need for doctors," Miller said.According to a news release, the 10-student-per-year increase for 2009 will require about $3 million to expand clinical teaching facilities, such as small classrooms where students learn basic skills such as listening to the heart and working with standardized patients.Miller added that before increasing the medical school class size, they need to make sure there are adequate facilities and faculty.Umbach's goal is to have the final report to the University Board of Regents for review by January 2008.If a plan is approved and funded by the University BOR, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, which accredits medical school programs, will be next in the line for review before any expansion can begin."Accreditation for MCG requires increased class size," Miller said.The Regents have recommended a total of $10 million in expansion funding for MCG School of Medicine for fiscal year 2009.Umbach will evaluate MCG's curriculum, resources and facilities to figure out how much MCG should grow and how quickly as well as the economic impact of the state and community, Miller said.
