A Unique Clinical Experience Where We Work

We provide clinical care and physician training in Emory-owned facilities as well as three major affiliate hospital systems: one of the nation's most respected veterans hospitals, one of the largest pediatric health systems in the U.S., and a Level I trauma safety-net hospital.

These facilities are learning laboratories where clinical practice is informed by the expertise of leading biomedical researchers to provide cutting-edge care to our patients. Our blend of basic science, translational research, and care that puts people first enables us to deliver creative solutions that improve health outcomes today and in the future.

Featured Experience Winship Cancer Institute

We're changing the way cancer is treated. As an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer better access to clinical trials and resources you won't find anywhere else in the state.

Working with Atlanta's wide range of ethnic groups and cultures prepares trainees for more equitable, effective medical practice designed to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse patient population.

School of Medicine faculty members provide expert care to patients at Emory's clinical locations and affiliate hospitals, along with training and mentorship to our residents and fellows.

A New Standard of Care Advanced Patient Care

Our multidisciplinary teams deliver complex care with a more human experience, focusing on patients' health and overall well-being instead of their illnesses and symptoms.

We have one of the largest postdoctoral training programs in the country, with positions for more than 1,200 residents in over 100 specialties.

Our faculty, staff, and students donate their time and expertise to patients who otherwise would not be able to afford access to advanced health care services

This center includes three schools, a national primate research center, a cancer institute, a global health institute, and the most comprehensive health care system in the state.

Patient Care Stories

The Georgia Hospital Association presented Sharon Pappas, chief nurse executive of Emory Healthcare, with the prestigious Hospital Hero Award for her outstanding contributions to the health care field.

Ravi I. Thadhani will oversee Emory’s academic health center, the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and shape the next era of research, training and health-care delivery innovation. He comes to Emory from Harvard Medical School and Mass General Brigham.
