Medicine/Psychiatry – Five-year program

  • There are approximately two positions per year in this category.

Over the course of their residency training program, residents participate in a broad-based educational curriculum that emphasizes achieving complete competence in general internal medicine, as well as allowing for balanced experiences in all the 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.

*The Preliminary one-year positions are primarily reserved for applicants matching in Emory's Radiation Oncology orNeurology residency programs.

**The Transitional one-year positions are primarily reserved for applicants who are matching for advanced training in Emory residencies including Anesthesiology, Radiology, Neurology, Ophthalmology and Dermatology.
