A Day in the Life of an Emory IM Resident

Emory internal medicine residents train at four Emory-affiliated teaching hospitals (Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown, Grady Memorial Hospital, and the Atlanta VA Medical Center). Each training site offers our residents a unique patient care experience, and the diversity of care settings means that our graduates are well-prepared for any postgraduate career.

Recently, we talked to PGY1 internal medicine resident Krithika Shanmugasundaram, MD about what makes the J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program stand out. Krithika is currently training at Grady, our public safety-net hospital and the largest general hospital in Georgia. With 953 total beds, Grady provides care for more than 30,000 inpatients each year.
