Resident Research

Emory internal medicine residents are actively engaged in research and scholarly projects throughout their time with the program. Each year, residents publish in some of the most prestigious journals across the full spectrum of internal medicine. Additionally, Emory maintains an impressive presence at local, regional, and national conferences both in general internal medicine and medical subspecialties. With the advent of our P.R.I.M.E. program and outstanding faculty mentorship, we fully expect that our residents’ impressive body of work will continue to expand. A sampling of our residents’ work is found below. It should be noted that these lists are not comprehensive, but a representative selection of our residents’ work
