Categorical Track Curriculum
The Emory Categorical residency track seeks to attract residents who are interested in becoming excellent clinicians and the future leaders in medicine. The primary goal of the Categorical track at Emory is to produce outstanding internists, many of whom will enter professional careers in general internal medicine, hospital medicine or research, as well as prepare others for further subspecialty medicine fellowship training.
The J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program utilizes a standardized set of experiential clinical rotations over 36 months (3 years), as well as frequent and timely educational and scholarly mentoring by our outstanding residency leadership and clinical faculty to ensure our residents gain the necessary clinical skills and scholarship during their training.
Thousands of graduates from the Categorical track currently practice across the country and around the world in diverse careers spanning academic practice, community practice, hospital medicine, international health, research and subspecialty practices in all the major medicine subspecialties. The Emory Categorical residency track is led by Dr. Karen Law, Associate Vice Chair of Education, Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology.
We accept approximately 50 catagorical residents each year.
