Student Wellness, Health and Other Resources
The health and well-being of Emory students is a top priority and essential to student success. While we encourage self-care, health promotion and prevention, medical students are not exempt from having physical and/or mental illness.
Student Health insurance coverage for sickness, accidents and hospitalization is required of all Emory students. All new and continuing degree-seeking and international Emory University students are required to have health insurance.
Emory University School of Medicine is committed to the wellness and well-being of learners, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds. This is facilitated through multiple domains which is longitudinal and begins at the start of medical student and extends to graduation.
If a student is having academic difficulty, academic counseling or tutoring may be suggested. It is always advisable for students to seek academic assistance from instructors/course directors immediately during a course or clerkship - rather waiting until examinations or final grades are issued.
Choosing a career path is one of the most significant decisions a medical student will make. At Emory, the career planning begins at matriculation and continues throughout medical school.
