The Preventive Medicine Residency program follows the established guidelines set forth by Emory University School of Medicine and the Office of Graduate Medical Education concerning resident eligibility and selection.
All appointments of residents to the Preventive Medicine Residency Staff of the Emory University School of Medicine must either:
Hold an MD or DO degree from an accredited medical school within the United States or Canada and they must be graduates of schools approved by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or the America Osteopathic Association (AOA), or
Graduates of medical schools outside of the United States or Canada must have received a current valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) or have a full, active and unrestricted license to practice medicine in a US licensing jurisdiction, or
Graduates of medical school outside of the United States who have completed the Fifth Pathway Program provided by an LCME-accredited medical school, or
International medical graduates who are non-US citizens with an ECFMG sponsored J-1 visa
In addition, our program (like that of many preventive medicine residencies) will only accept residents who have already completed a PGY1 clinical year that complies with ACGME standards for preventive medicine. Non-eligible applicants will not be considered for selection in the Emory Preventive Medicine Residency Program.
Residents wishing to apply to the Emory Preventive Medicine Program must provide a:
Note: Applicants will submit an application to Rollins School of Public Health only after receiving direction from the Program Director.
All items can be emailed directly to the Residency Program Coordinator, Brittany Summerlin, MPH, CHES at firstname.lastname@example.org but items 6, 7 and 8 must be on file in official form directly from the originating institution to the residency program before any offers can be made. Unofficial copies can be sent over to "complete" an application until the official forms have arrived.
