Thank you, Hospital Medicine doctors, for all you do

National Doctors’ Day is Wednesday, March 30. The Emory Medicine Recognitions Committee is creating a special acknowledgement to honor the Emory doctors who were nominated by internal faculty and/or staff for their dedication to improving the health and well-being of our patients and community through the care they provide, the research they conduct, and/or their efforts to teach and inspire young doctors. Today, the Emory University Department of Medicine would like to congratulate our nominees in the Division of Hospital Medicine. As always, we would like to thank every member of our team for their hard work and commitment.
