A fascination for anatomy is what led Dr. Blankenship to pursue a medical degree.
“I remembered my brother who was in dental school taking me to see his anatomy lab. I thought it was the coolest thing. I knew that was my destiny. I knew standing in that lab at Medical College of Georgia that I would later be standing there learning to be a doctor.”
Dr. Blankenship has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Georgia and a Medical Doctorate degree from Medical College of Georgia. He served residencies in general surgery and urology at University of Tennessee and is American Board of Urology board certified.
