Internal medicine residency training at Emory University Hospital

Emory University Hospital is a major tertiary/quaternary care center in Georgia and the southeastern United States. It features more than 100 ICU beds, a large transplant center, world-renowned cardiovascular care, close proximity to the CDC, and the Serious Communicable Disease Unit, where four patients with Ebola infection were treated in 2014. The experience at Emory University Hospital provides residents with exposure to high-acuity patients, rare pathology, and a strong teaching faculty.

Residents at Emory University Hospital rotate through primary medical, cardiovascular, and critical care services, with diverse specialty exposure through consult months. Emory University Hospital is located next to the Emory University School of Medicine, which provides excellent facilities for procedural and simulation training for the residents.
