SWGA Campus

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital

The campus space is within walking distance of Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital (PPMH), the largest regional hospital in Southwest Georgia. The partnership between the UGA COP and PPMH is important and valuable, given the area’s need for healthcare professionals, including pharmacists. This learning environment provides many opportunities for professional student development as well as interdisciplinary healthcare education and training. In addition, PPMH provides a PGY-1 (post-graduate year 1) pharmacy residency, including 2 residency positions, in association with the UGA COP. For more information on the residency program, visit the UGA College of Pharmacy Clinical and Administrative Sciences residency page.
