Resident Well Being

The Emory School of Medicine Office of Graduate Medical Education is committed to ensuring that residents and fellows remain physically and mentally healthy, retain their joy in learning and maintain their idealism while completing their training programs.  Emory residents and fellows play a crucial role in the lives and health of our community and are an important resource for Atlanta and Georgia.  Residency is inherently difficult and can be a stressful time and it is important that residents take care of themselves and their peers in order to get the most out of their educational experience.
