Palliative Medicine

We train medical students, residents, nurses, and fellows to provide compassionate care for seriously ill patients through an interdisciplinary team approach to caregiving. 

Physician Assistant Program

This top-five nationally ranked program provides innovative clinical training, a wide range of electives, and opportunities to work with underserved and diverse patient populations in a variety of clinical settings.

Podiatric Medicine

The Podiatric Surgery Residency Program was the first three-year podiatry training program in the United States specializing in foot care, and foot, ankle, and leg surgery.

The program chooses four physicians each year to serve their residency in our premiere program. These physicians are often in the top 10 percent of their medical school classes across the country. We also offer one-month externships for 30 to 40 physicians each year. The externships give more physicians a chance to learn from internationally recognized physicians who are involved with the program.

Home to the Preventive Medicine Residency Program, with accreditation for General Preventive Medicine/Public Health. Training is available across the clinical network at Emory University School of Medicine and through the MPH at the Rollins School of Public Health.
