Health Services Medical Director receives promotion
Health Services Medical Director, Brian M. DeLoach, M.D. was recently promoted to Clinical Assistant Professor with the Medical College of Georgia.
DeLoach played an integral role in initiating the partnership between Health Services and MCG and was originally appointed as a Clinical Assistant Professor in 2016. In the spring, he was awarded the 2018 Medical College of Georgia Exemplary Teaching Award for Undergraduate Medical Education for his role as clinical educator.
As part of their training, students in the department of pediatrics at MCG must spend time in a clinical setting gaining hands-on experience. During their four week ambulatory medicine rotation, those students spend two weeks under the instruction of DeLoach and his staff and then two weeks with a local internal medicine physician.
“Our practice provides an excellent opportunity for medical students to work in an environment with providers from multiple training backgrounds and gives them valuable exposure to how care is coordinated in an accredited patient centered medical home environment,” said DeLoach. “Medical students who enter MCG after obtaining undergraduate or graduate degrees from universities across Georgia and the nation, are always amazed by our state-of-the-art Health Services facility on the Statesboro Campus and by the high quality, comprehensive care we provide to our students.”
DeLoach and his staff are especially proud to serve Georgia Southern alumni who have gone on to pursue a degree at MCG and who come back to campus to complete a clinical rotation. “We can’t play favorites, but we always look forward to hosting those students who have graduated from Georgia Southern and return to campus for their medical rotation!”
