The Emory Department of Emergency Medicine has the goal of being the premier academic Emergency Medicine program in the world and the mission to be the training hub, trauma center and safety net for one of the largest metropolitan regions in the United States. The training environment encompasses a tertiary care university hospital, the regions sole public hospital and main trauma center, an urban, community hospital and the region’s elite pediatric referral center. These forces and opportunities combine to provide an unparalleled educational opportunity in Emergency Medicine.
