Mercer University
Welcome to the Mercer University Health Sciences Center, where you’ll find a new way of thinking, a new way of training healthcare professionals, and a new standard for patient care.

Together...

we’re behind you.

A team approach to
training and education
leads to an integrated
spectrum of care
from Mercer Health
Sciences Center.
  • Why the Center,
    why now?

    Regardless of how health care reform in this country is implemented over the next few years, one thing is certain: We must find ways to deliver patient care more effectively and efficiently. To meet the growing demand for access to health care as our population grows and ages, our health care professionals must learn to work together more effectively as a team.
  • Why the Center,
    why now?

    On July 1, 2012, the Mercer University Health Sciences Center was established to fill this critical demand by organizing our schools and colleges under the umbrella of the Mercer University Health Sciences Center.
  • Why the Center,
    why now?

    The Center will enhance interprofessional education by blurring traditional academic and professional silos. Teaching future health care professionals how to work effectively as a team will equip them to practice this holistic approach in our hospitals and clinics.
  • Why the Center,
    why now?

    By creating a unified academic health sciences center we will be able to educate more health professionals for our growing – and aging – population. Having our health sciences program organized within an academic health sciences center facilitates these kinds of expansions, and that means greater access to health care for Georgians.
  • Why the Center,
    why now?

    The Center will produce greater collaboration on research to find cures and effective treatments for diseases that diminish our quality of life and drive up health care costs. Important research is taking place on Mercer campuses and we’re seeing research results in targeted drug delivery and determining appropriate regimens for individual patients.
