New Georgia medical school faces hurdle

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A team of scientists is set to visit Athens to comb over the preparations for the new medical campus scheduled to open next year near the University of Georgia campus.

A good review by the Liaison Committee for Medical Evaluation
could give the partnership between the Medical College of Georgia
and UGA the go-ahead to begin recruiting students.

UGA Provost Arnett Mace calls it a "very important visit."

The committee is set to decide in June whether the college can
expand its entering class by 40 students for the Athens campus in
August 2010.
