Residency Scholarship

The J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program strongly supports and encourages academic scholarship by residents and helps provide resources (such as the PRIME program) to achieve that goal. Faculty mentorship is at the core of the resident research experience at Emory. Whether these relationships are fostered through the PRIME program, or develop naturally through meetings on inpatient or outpatient rotations, Emory faculty mentors are excited to provide guidance in hands-on research activities as well as the writing, editing and publishing of manuscripts. In part because of this fostering environment, Emory IM residents have been extremely productive, publishing frequently in peer-edited journals, authoring book chapters, leading quality improvement projects, and participating in numerous other scholarly works.

Our residents also present at multiple venues at the local, regional, national, and international levels. Locally, residents have the opportunity to submit original work to annual forums and receive feedback from experts in the field. Such local venues include:

Our residents also present at regional, national, and international conferences. All residents in good standing are eligible to receive annual financial support to travel to and present at a conference. Our residents travel throughout the United States and internationally to numerous specialty specific and general medicine conferences, and have been very successful in securing both oral and poster presentations.
