Core Curriculum Components

The Emory Preventive Medicine Residency Program’s overall educational goals are addressed by ensuring that during the two‐year program residents:

  • Earn an MPH degree
  • Provide direct patient care for an annual minimum of 2 months
  • Participate for a minimum of 2 months in activities in governmental public health settings
  • Participate in research and other related activities
  • Participate in didactic and other learning imperatives


Emory Preventive Medicine Residents train and are educated within a large spectrum of health care, public health, educational, and other settings in metropolitan Atlanta and other areas of Georgia. 

The spectrum of rotations and settings allows our residents to learn about public health and general preventive medicine through experiences that involve a variety of populations, public health and clinical problems, and methods.
