Dean Vikas Sukhatme came to Emory in 2017 as a researcher, clinician, and translational scientist, with goals to re-imagine medicine as a community and improve health for all.

Our focus areas span more than 25 disciplines in basic and clinical science, providing a broad range of expertise that covers every area of modern medicine.

The School of Medicine's diverse team of nearly 3,000 faculty members works in hospitals, clinics, classrooms, labs, and research centers to improve lives today and for the next generation.

We honor the dedication and achievements of Emory faculty, students, and alumni with recognition programs for teaching, clinical care, and research.

By the Numbers

568 medical students

Our classes are racially diverse, and a substantial percentage of our first-year students are "nontraditional," meaning they were out of college for at least a year before starting medical school.

524 health professional students

We have five allied health programs, including a Physician Assistant program ranked third and a Physical Therapy program ranked fifth in the nation by US News & World Report.

1,292 residents in training

We provide more than half of the residency training positions in Georgia, and 53 of our 106 training programs are the only such programs in the state.

2,757 physician and basic science faculty

Our school is part of an academic health sciences center, and our faculty collaborate with faculty in schools of public health and nursing and a primate research center.

This industry isn't just hard on patients - it's also mentally, emotionally, and physically demanding for practitioners. We're acknowledging the human side of medical practice and taking steps to change the culture, to improve everyone's wellbeing.

We're committed to a climate of inclusion and equity through training, recruiting, and employing a diverse group of health care leaders who will meet the needs of the multicultural and international communities we serve.

We're proudly accredited by the American Medical Association and Association of American Medical Colleges, and many of our programs are officially certified by professional organizations that govern their fields.
