As the Dean and Executive Vice President of Morehouse School of Medicine, I am excited to share with you my commitment to increase the class size at Morehouse School of Medicine over the next four years to an entering class of 100 students by 2016 in the MD program. With Georgia’s population growth projected to continue through 2030, the need to significantly expand medical education within the state of Georgia is at a critical point in time. The founding principles of MSM serve as the basis of our unwavering commitment to be in the forefront to address the health care shortage facing our nation and the state of Georgia. Morehouse School of Medicine from its inception, has worked side by side with the state to increase the diversity and number of culturally competent primary care physicians serving Georgia and we look forward to continuing this effort and partnership.
As an initial step in preparing for class expansion, a Class Expansion Task Force was developed and charged with the task of ensuring the engagement all stake holders in the process. The Class Expansion Task Force conducted a survey which was distributed to the Morehouse School of Medicine Community. The survey captured levels of concern regarding class expansion and below you will find graphs reflecting the categories and level of concerns from our responders. I encourage you to take the class expansion survey by following the link provided.
This website will officially serve as a primary source of communication and updates regarding this exciting endeavor. I encourage you to visit this website frequently as we move forward.
