Georgia Mortgage Loan Facts

Vast woods, rolling hills, and a large number of rivers offer a special attraction to physicians and their families in Georgia. With a population of more than 10 million, there are 23,000 working physicians, making this one of the larger southern states. The cost of living is lower than much of the rest of the nation and physician salaries are also on the low end of the scale. However, the state offers close knit, communities, southern charm and family values which make it an interesting option for many active doctors. Top universities for the state include the University of Georgia, Emory University, and the University of North Georgia.
