Primary Care Accelerated Track Program

Three Sites, Three Tracks, One Primary Care

The Primary Care Accelerated Track Program allows students interested in a career in family medicine, general internal medicine or pediatrics the opportunity to complete their medical school coursework in an accelerated three-year program of study.

The Primary Care Accelerated Track Program curriculum builds upon the strengths of the Mercer University School of Medicine problem-based curriculum with clinical experiences and community medicine activities built into the preclinical curriculum and reinforced through continued longitudinal clinical experiences at the ACT site, clerkships, sub-internships and elective experiences.

The educational objectives for this program are comparable to those for the four-year M.D. program. The curriculum is essentially the same as the curriculum for the four-year M.D. program but is compressed into 130 weeks of instructional time.

The program offers more educational contact opportunities between students and the respective residency faculty in the chosen specialty at their assigned site. The Family Medicine Accelerated Track is offered at the Savannah, Macon and Columbus campuses. The Internal Medicine Accelerated Track is offered at the Savannah and Macon campuses. The Pediatrics Accelerated Track is offered at the Savannah and Macon campuses.

The plan for student graduates of the Primary Care Accelerated Track Program is to complete their residency training at their ACT site.
