Emory University School of Medicine
Welcome to the Emory School of Medicine!

We’ve begun a new era in the School of Medicine, where we have raised the bar in medical education.

Our new medical education building provides a friendly, state-of-the art home for students. The 162,000-square-foot building is a visible sign that we have never been more committed to medical education nor more determined to be a model for training physicians uniquely prepared to practice 21st century medicine.

The building makes possible a more dynamic way of teaching. Our new curriculum teaches the fundamentals of science within clinical settings and immerses students in clinical experiences from week one. Our faculty helped design the new curriculum and today are more excited about teaching than ever.

Instead of focusing on large classroom lectures, the new curriculum emphasizes small-group learning and greater interaction among students and faculty in medicine, allied health, and other disciplines. The building offers wireless technology, experiential learning through simulation labs and patient exam rooms, a dissection facility equipped with computers, and much more. It also makes possible a 15% increase in the size of our entering class to help alleviate the severe shortage of physicians projected in the next decade.

For students passionate about science, our MD/PhD program prepares them for careers as investigators and teachers in biomedical research. Some MD/PhD students enroll in a joint program with the Georgia Institute of Technology, with which the medical school shares a top-ranked biomedical engineering department. For students committed to public health, our MD/MPH program with the Rollins School of Public Health prepares physician leaders in epidemiology, international health, health policy, and other fields.

Emory is one of the top biomedical research institutions in the nation, ranking among the top 20 schools of medicine in NIH research funding. Outstanding programs in neuroscience, transplantation, vaccine research, oncology, cardiovascular biology, biomedical engineering and nanotechnology make Emory a vibrant research center. Through these and other programs, the latest scientific breakthroughs are applied to patient care. New initiatives in predictive health and global health will improve how we prevent and treat disease in the future.

Our medical faculty is responsible for more than 3.6 million patient visits at Emory’s own or affiliated clinics and hospitals. These physicians are part of Emory Healthcare, the largest and most comprehensive service provider in Georgia. Emory physicians also provide a major portion of the city’s indigent and public health care. Just as important, medical students and residents learn to care for patients in a variety of settings, including Emory University Hospital, Emory Crawford Long Hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Wesley Woods Center, and the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

We invite you to explore the many opportunities that we offer in medical education, biomedical research, and clinical care. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way.

Sincerely,

Thomas J. Lawley, M.D.
