Emory University's J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program is both rigorous and competitive. Each year, the Department of Medicine receives more than 4,000 applications and interviews approximately 10 percent of candidates who apply.
Interim Department Chair W. Robert Taylor, MD, PhD; Vice-Chair for Education Wendy Armstrong, MD; the residency program director Karen Law, MD; associate program directors; medical student education leaders; and staff across the school collaborate to ensure that the educational programs in the Emory Department of Medicine continue to meet the highest standards of innovation and quality.
Emory’s access to a large and varied patient population provides residents and fellows with intriguing and often unique training opportunities. Our goal is to cultivate a program dedicated to excellent teaching in the context of superb clinical care. Emory Department of Medicine residents routinely receive a 100-percent pass rate on the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) exam, a reflection of our commitment to excellence. Our faculty, fellows, and residents also conduct a significant portion of clinical teaching at the Emory University School of Medicine.
