Primary care residency track

The primary care residency track, within the J. Willis Hurst Residency program at Emory University, is designed to produce outstanding general internists who are preparing for a professional career in primary care clinical practice, as clinician-educators, or clinician-investigators. The program, led by program director Stacy Higgins, MD, has 24 total residents.

The inpatient training for the primary care residency track is the same as the categorical track, but the ambulatory blocks and curriculum are specialized for those who wish to practice General Internal Medicine. The primary care track is focused on collaboration, and residents spend their ambulatory months together—learning with and from one another.
