Rowell, GA: Trinity School of Medicine today announced a new partnership with South Georgia State College. This partnership will create a guaranteed pathway to an accredited medical school for South Georgia State College (SGSC) students seeking to become physicians and advance healthcare opportunities in Southeast Georgia.
“This new partnership will help SGSC students in the Bachelor of Biological Science program achieve their goal of becoming credentialed physicians,” said Trinity School of Medicine president and CEO Steven Wilson. “Together, we have developed a streamlined admissions process with automatic acceptance for SGSC students who meet the required admission standards. It provides a clear, defined path to achieving a challenging goal. It also provides a unique opportunity for students to take their education abroad, gaining valuable global healthcare experience”
“We are very excited about the opportunity to provide SGSC students with a high-quality, pathway into an accredited medical school.” says Sam Mahra, Regional Director of Admissions at Trinity School of Medicine. “Our institutions have recognized the need to provide opportunities to students who attend college and universities in southeast Georgia. Graduates from SGSC who eventually graduate from Trinity School of Medicine can return to their communities and significantly impact healthcare access and the regional economy. With limited medical schools, students need quality options and Trinity can meet that need.”
“South Georgia State College has a longstanding tradition of offering academic programs that opens doors for students to accomplish their educational goals and creating opportunities for future success in their career fields. This partnership will offer a seamless pathway for students to earn a bachelor’s degree at SGSC and then further their education at Trinity School of Medicine,” says SGSC President Dr. Ingrid Thompson-Sellers. “Our goal is to set the necessary foundation for students interested in an advanced healthcare field so they may take the next step and complete their education at an accredited medical school. This is one more way we can show our commitment to their long-term success.”
