What is Preventive Medicine?

The Preventive Medicine Division at Emory is a dynamic part of the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine that focuses on population health and clinical preventive medicine. Leadership efforts focus on expanding the role of prevention in the Emory Healthcare system and developing future preventive medicine specialists through our dynamic, ACGME accredited residency program. Our faculty work on developing community based approaches to chronic disease, response to infectious disease, and advanced research for prevention. We also partner with other healthcare systems (like the Atlanta VA Medical Center, the Centers for Disease Control, etc.), and Emory divisions (like Infectious Disease) to develop comprehensive solutions as well as train our residents.
