Residency Program

The Emory University Department of Medicine Residency Program  supports several different options for residency training including:

Over the course of their residency training, residents participate in a comprehensive educational curriculum that emphasizes achieving complete competence in general internal medicine, while allowing for ample experience in all internal medicine subspecialties.

We utilize an integrated educational program that includes core didactics delivered at each of the Emory University affiliated hospitals with a group of strategically placed layered programs that reinforce the achievement of the key clinical skills in internal medicine. In addition, we provide high level training curricula that focus on leadership, teaching, communication, evidence based medicine, procedural competence, performance improvement and transitions of care.
