Doctor of Medicine Student Handbook
The School of Medicine MD Student Handbook is a reference for medical students and others regarding the administrative policies, rules and regulations of Emory University and the Emory University School of Medicine. In addition, this Student Handbook contains policies and procedures for areas such as admissions, academic and professional standards, progress and promotion, financial aid, student organizations, disability insurance, academic and personal counseling, and student health.
The policies and procedures in place are to ensure student success and help students maintain the high academic and professional standards necessary to be a physician. The School of Medicine abides by and follows all University policies, except where noted. Part of being an excellent physician is always knowing expectations and ensuring those are met. These skills will continue to serve students well as they are required to obtain and maintain licensure, hospital privileges, credentialing, and beyond.
The policies and procedures appearing in the MD Student Handbook reflect the most current policies and procedures of the University and School of Medicine, but are subject to amendment and change without prior notice. EUSOM reserves the right to change policies, procedures, and programs. Minor changes will be posted directly to the Student Handbook. When major changes occur, a notification will be sent to all medical students.
It is the responsibility of each student enrolled in the Emory University School of Medicine to understand and abide by the regulations and policies within this handbook and within Emory University Publications.
