The medical programs at Okefenokee Technical College utilize a competitive admissions process, selecting students by established criteria. Each program has a maximum number of students allowed according to student-teacher ratios or clinical assignment availability. Once students are selected for a program cycle, students who were not selected may compete to be selected in the next program cycle. The minimum admissions requirements, specific to each program, must be completed before a student can be considered for acceptance into that program. Students who are interested in entering a medical program at OTC should become familiar with the established selection criteria for that program.
