G. Michael Shoffner M.D. Scholarship Fund
Dr. Shoffner did not choose to go to Medical School until he was 37 years old. He attended medical school at the Medical College of Georgia, and he graduated number one in his class. He also received the Physician’s Physician award, the doctor his classmates would most like to have as their own physician, an honor rarely awarded to the top student in the class. Following medical school, he completed a residency in neurology at the Medical College of Georgia before returning to Macon to practice with Neurology Associates. He was best known and respected by both colleagues and patients for his patience and his warmth. He is remembered for his wit and sense of humor, his broad range of interests, his genuinely caring nature, his depth of knowledge, and his ever-present smile.
