Emory University

Our Residency Program aims to prepare each resident for any chosen career path in Emergency Medicine. Our training mission embraces the core competencies of patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice. Graduates of our training program are equipped with the essential knowledge base in all aspects of Emergency Medicine, including clinical practice, teaching, research, and administration of our specialty.

Our program offers a superb clinical experience. The diversity of pathology and the high acuity of the patient population at our clinical sites provide excellent training ground. Our residents train at Grady Memorial Hospital, the public hospital for the Atlanta metro area, and the main Level-One Trauma Center for our region. The high volume of patients and patient procedures significantly enhances the education of the Emergency Medicine residents.
