General Medicine Education
Emory University’s Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics is committed to sharing our passion and expertise in a challenging clinical setting. Emory's multi-hospital internal medicine residency training program offers an incredibly diverse set of patients and clinical settings and our faculty are committed to delivering high quality, innovative educational curricula. Our mission is to produce outstanding general internists and geriatricians.
All Emory internal medicine residents rotate among five participating hospitals during the course of their residency. They experience the intensity of tertiary/quaternary patient care at Emory University Hospital, the diversity and complexities of providing patient care in our inner-city Grady Memorial Hospital, work among veterans at the Atlanta VA Medical Center, learn to practice within a university/community hospital environment at Emory University Hospital Midtown and develop the multidisciplinary skills necessary to provide care for geriatric patients at Emory Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital.
Over the course of three years, Emory IM residents participate in a broad-based educational curriculum that emphasizes achieving complete competence in general internal medicine as well as allows for balanced experiences in all the internal medicine subspecialties. We utilize an integrated educational program that includes core didactics delivered at each of our hospitals with a group of strategically placed layered programs that reinforce the achievement of 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.
