Georgia’s only public medical school reported this week that a record number of students applied to the Augusta campus this year, while new numbers showed Georgia’s doctor shortage is not improving. Still, a popular medical school could eventually mean more doctors in the state.
The University System of Georgia reports that systemwide enrollment has set a record this fall. The number of students enrolled jumped 2 percent from last fall. Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville grew most with a 43.9 percent increase.
