Health & Medicine Profile


Chartered by the state of Georgia in 1785, the University of Georgia is the birthplace of public higher education in America — launching our nation’s great tradition of world-class education for all.

 What began as a commitment to inspire the next generation grows stronger today through global research, hands-on experiential learning, and extensive outreach. As a top 10 “best value” in public higher education, the University of Georgia tackles some of the world’s grand challenges—from combating infectious disease and securing the world’s food supply to advancing economic growth and analyzing the environment.

As Georgia’s flagship institution, the University is recognized for its commitment to student excellence, particularly through an emphasis on rigorous learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom, hands-on research, and leadership opportunities. These experiences contribute to the University’s exceptional retention, graduation, and career placement rates. Our students have earned more than 50 Rhodes, Marshall, Truman, and other prestigiousnational academic scholarships over just the past decade.

Located in the Classic City of Athens, approximately an hour northeast of Atlanta, the University of Georgia thrives in a community that promotes the benefits of a culture-rich college town with a strong economic center. 

At the University of Georgia, it’s more than a mission. It’s a commitment we make to our students, the state of Georgia, and the world.
