Division of General Medicine and Geriatrics

The Emory Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics includes four sections: VA Primary Care and Quality; The Emory Clinic Primary Care, Grady General Medicine and Geriatrics; and the Section of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology. The overall program is strategically positioned to address complex health care issues, such as the management of multiple chronic conditions, the aging of the population, health disparities in access and outcomes, and public health and outcomes research.


Our mission is to improve health by providing quality, comprehensive healthcare in a compassionate, culturally competent, ethical, and fiscally responsible manner. The Division leads through clinical excellence, progressive undergraduate and graduate medical education, and innovative research. The Division has strong clinical partnerships with access to diverse patient populations and data. Additionally, there are linkages between the medical school curriculum and the Division where undergraduate students performing their five-month Discovery phase work directly with faculty members and their research teams. Students, trainees, and faculty also have opportunities to earn an additional degree, such as MPH or an MS in clinical research.
