We have a vibrant surgical residency, advance practice providers and two surgical critical care fellows per year.

We are looking for Trauma/Acute Care Surgeons who would be a good fit for our team, who wish to work hard in a supportive environment, and develop an academic career.

Augusta is on the banks of the Savannah River and is within an easy two and a half-hour drive of Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Savannah, multiple beaches in Georgia and South Carolina (including the famous Hilton Head) as well as the Smokey and Blue Ridge mountains. It is a growing and thriving city with a metropolitan-area population of around 450,000, a mild pleasant climate (annual mean temperature of 64 degrees) a low cost of living and a wealth of recreational opportunities. The city was recently ranked the second most favorable place to live in the state. Although best known for the Masters Golf tournament, it offers much more, including eleven golf courses, performances by the Augusta Symphony, Augusta Ballet, Augusta Opera and the Augusta Players, to the Augusta Invitational Rowing Regatta and the National Barrel Horse Association’s World Championships.
