The Historic Academy of Medicine, built in 1941, was host to the city’s oldest medical society, the Medical Association of Atlanta. The Building’s grandeur represented the prominence of the medical profession in the city, as well as the society’s determination to provide the finest medical training and education in the growing healthcare community. In 2008 the Historic Academy of Medicine was gifted to the Georgia Tech Foundation by the Atlanta Medical Heritage Inc. for the Institute's use. The building started a 6 million dollar, 18 month renovation in 2010 and celebrated its 70th anniversary with a grand re-opening on December 11th, 2011.
