UGA moves ahead on med school

ATHENS, Ga. -- The Navy's transfer of its Prince Avenue supply corps school to the University of Georgia is going well, even though the federal government has not signed off on it, Athens officials said Thursday.

The university will admit the first class to its new medical school, temporarily housed at the former O'Malley's building, this fall.

State lawmakers have committed $7 million in 2010 to help UGA turn the Navy school into a health sciences campus. The base is scheduled to close and the supply corps school move to Rhode Island by March 2011.
