Division of General Medicine and Geriatrics
The General Medicine and Geriatrics Division 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 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. Division faculty and their research teams work directly with undergraduate students performing their five-month Discovery phase. Students, trainees, and faculty also have opportunities to earn an additional degree, such as MPH or an MS in clinical research.
