Division of General Medicine and Geriatrics
The Emory Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics was formed by the 2012 merger of the Division of General Internal Medicine and the Section of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology. This joint 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 medical education and training, and innovative research. The Division has strong clinical partnerships with access to diverse patient populations and data, and the medical school curriculum includes a mandatory five-month Discovery phase which allows many students to earn an additional degree, such as MPH, MS in clinical research, etc.
