Preventive Medicine Residency Training Grant

In spring 2018, the Emory Preventive Medicine Residency Program was selected for a preventive medicine residency training grant from the Health Services and Resources Administration (HRSA: Grant No. D33HP31663 [Preventive Medicine Residencies]).

This support has enabled our program to re-double its commitment to increasing physician training and workforce capacity in preventive medicine through a well-defined and enriched curriculum that emphasizes increased inter-professional collaboration and delivery of preventive services to medically underserved and other communities.

Catalyzed by this support, Emory Preventive Medicine Residency training includes enriched learning opportunities in:

  • Longitudinal research
  • Policy evaluation
  • Quality improvement
  • Direct care

Other major focus areas

  • Preventive cardiology
  • Cancer prevention and control
  • Frontline public health practice
  • And select areas of priority for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services such as:
    • Opioid abuse
    • Mental health
    • Childhood obesity
    • Health disparities among underserved populations
