Internal medicine residency training at Grady Memorial Hospital

What is unique about residency training at Grady Memorial Hospital?

Grady Memorial Hospital is a unique training institution that attracts many residents to Emory. Medicine residents choose to train at Emory for the opportunity to provide care for Grady’s diverse patient population in collaboration with outstanding educators.

Grady Memorial Hospital is an internationally recognized teaching hospital staffed exclusively by doctors from the Emory University and Morehouse schools of medicine. Residents work solely with attendings, who serve as clinician-educators. This allows residents to develop autonomy under the guidance of faculty who are focused on trainee education. Impressively, an estimated 25 percent of all doctors practicing medicine in Georgia received some training at Grady.

After training at Grady, Emory residents feel prepared to practice independently as physicians and move on to the next step in their careers.
