Primary Care Clinic
When students enter Georgia Southern University, they are automatically assigned to a Medical Team in the General Medical Clinic. Georgia Southern University Health Services has three Medical Teams composed of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, licensed practical nurses and certified medical assistants. They work as a team enabling each patient to return to the same providers and team for continuity of care. The teams are designated by color and consist of the Medical Team Blue, Medical Team Green, and Medical Team Gold.
