By the Numbers

605 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.

493 health professional students

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

1,414 residents in training

From our 118 accredited programs, we provide more than half of the residency training positions in Georgia.

3,599 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.

Diversity & Inclusion An inclusive climate for all

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.

Emory's Health Care Partnerships

Emory School of Medicine is a key part of Atlanta's healthcare hub, which enables us to tackle global health issues while also serving patients right here at home.
