Primary Care Residency

Emory Primary Care Residency Program

Emory Primary Care Residency Program, directed by Stacy Higgins, MD, matches eight residents each year for a total of 24 residents in the program. Residents enjoy a small, individualized program as well as the advantages of being contained in a larger university program.  Emory offers three months of primary care training each year, interspersed with inpatient training identical to that of the categorical residents.

Primary Care residents receive in-depth training in ambulatory care, preventive medicine, patient-doctor communication, working on teams, outpatient medical problems, and chronic disease management. The Primary Care Residency Program, considered one of the best in the nation, generally matches completely each year and has a track record of sending most graduates into general internal medicine.

Emory Preventative Medicine Residency Program

The mission of the Emory Preventive Medicine Residency is to equip trainees with the core competencies of preventive medicine (the specialty of medical practice that focuses on the health of individuals, communities, and defined populations) and to prepare them for specialty certification in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine.  Our program, residents, and graduates focus on health promotion and modifying or eliminating the risks of disease, injury, disability, and death. Our residents are exposed to preventive medicine, and research through public health, occupational medicine, clinical medicine, informatics, policy development, academic medicine, international medicine, and research.  Candidates who have completed training in internal medicine have an opportunity for a 1-year track (IM residency graduate with an MPH degree) or a 2-year track (IM residency graduate who will receive tuition to earn an MPH degree during PM training).
