ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Officials are showing off the first phase of the medical partnership school between the University of Georgia and the Georgia Health Sciences University.
More than 800 students, faculty members and staffers, including 120 medical students, will move to the campus next month. The first phase of the campus cost $11.4 million to renovate three main buildings for the medical school and the UGA College of Public Health for classrooms and administrative and faculty offices.
The Augusta Chronicle reports the second phase of renovation, expected to cost $8.5 million, will add services including a student center and dining hall.
The project is being built on what was the old Navy Supply Corps School campus and was born from a need for more physicians in the state.
