Resident Opportunities

Global Health Rotation

The Global Health Residency Scholars Program is a four-week rotation, international elective for senior residents in Ethiopia, or other developing country depending on availability. During a four-week clinical rotation, the resident will compare and contrast obstetrical and gynecological disease issues in a large urban Ethiopian public hospital with those in the resident’s home community, explore personal and professional interests in international health, participate in routine clinical activities, and gain exposure to infectious diseases and advanced disease states, both gynecological and obstetrical, that are rare in the United States. The resident will have an active role in the educational activities and will prepare didactic sessions appropriate for medical students and residents.

GME Tracks

Residents in their PGY3 and PGY4 have an opportunity to complement their training through the Emory GME Residency Tracks. These unique pathways in global health, quality improvement/patient safety, medical education, ethics, and healthcare management will offer improvement in resident training outside the standard training program


Residents receive free medical and optional dental and/or vision insurance. In addition, residents may open a flexible spending account and choose Emory's 401k program.  A copy of the Housestaff Manual, which provides details regarding additional benefits and leave, may be viewed at the Graduate Medical Education section. All parking at all clinical sites is provided at no cost to the resident


Residents have three weeks of vacation per academic year. During the Christmas / New Year holiday, "block scheduling" allows all residents additional time with family and friends during one of these two periods. 

Work Hours

Work hours are compliant with the ACGME guidelines regarding the maximum of 80 hours per week averaged over four weeks. Most rotations average 65-70 hours per week. The program uses the web-based New Innovations software for electronic reporting.
