Medical Student Rotations
About The Program
Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), one of the fastest growing health systems in the state of Georgia, based in one of the fastest growing counties in the state, is perfectly positioned for medical students to live, work and play.
Medical students will learn under experienced and passionate faculty with a commitment to team-based education to promote personal and professional development. Some inpatient rotations will enable medical students to work with our resident physicians.
Medical students will enjoy the NGMC culture of continuous improvement, consistent growth, cutting edge technology and breakthrough ideas.
NGHS has updated their mask requirements. Please check with your preceptor on mask requirements for specific work areas.
How to Apply
An application and required documents are to be emailed to the Medical Student Coordinator. Application requirements include:
- Unofficial Transcripts
- COMLEX and/or USMLE Scores
- CV or Resume
- Personal Statement
- Please note that NGHS will not be able to provide vaccination exemptions for students. The student/school will need to provide proof of exemption or vaccination status to NGHS. If a student does not have an exemption or verification of vaccination, they will not be able to work.
If your application is approved, additional documentation will be required during on-boarding. The Medical Student Coordinator will communicate with you regarding these requirements.
For all visiting rotations at Northeast Georgia Medical Center, we must first have an Affiliation Agreement in place with your institution. If you do not know if your school has an agreement with Northeast Georgia Medical Center, please contact your student coordinator or the NGMC GME Medical Student Coordinator.
If there is no agreement currently in place, please allow up to eight weeks to process one. An agreement must be signed by both parties before any rotation begins. Northeast Georgia Medical Center uses the AAMC Affiliation Agreement along with an implementation letter for signature.
NGMC Identification Badges
An NGMC ID badge is required to begin your rotation and will provide access to specific locations throughout the hospital and NGPG campuses. If your badge does not provide proper access, or you find your rotation requires additional access, please contact the Medical Student Coordinator who will request access from Security. Your NGMC ID must be worn at all times and clearly visible during your rotation.
Visiting medical students will receive a temporary Medical Student ID from the Medical Student Coordinator. You will receive an email with a more specific appointment time to pick up your ID. Temporary Medical Student IDs MUST be returned to the Medical Student Coordinator in the GME office when your rotation ends. Please notify the Medical Student Coordinator if you anticipate a problem in returning the ID.
