The academic medical center difference

As an academic health center, we must provide a full range of clinical services and maintain the infrastructure to foster education and research.
Our physicians have the most up-to-date knowledge and training. Many of our health care professionals train the next generation of caregivers, while others conduct pioneering research that improves medical diagnosis, treatments and technology, bringing the medicine of tomorrow to patient care today.
In short, Augusta University Health brings world-class clinicians, pioneering research, and the latest technologies and breakthroughs right here in Augusta.
