Candidates for this position must have a professional degree in medicine (M.D. or D.O.); have an unrestricted license to practice medicine in the State of Georgia; be Board Certified in IM or FP; hold a DEA certification, and must meet and maintain hospital privileges at two of the four area hospitals.
