Preventive Medicine Residency Program

Residency Program Overview

What is a Preventive Medicine Residency?
Preventive Medicine is a specialty that links clinical medicine with medical management, research, and population health. Our program, residents, and graduates focus on health promotion and modifying or eliminating the risks of disease, injury, disability, and death. Our residents are exposed to preventive medicine, and research through public health, occupational medicine, clinical medicine, informatics, policy development, academic medicine, international medicine, and research.

Emory University's Preventive Medicine Residency Program
Our residency program is housed within Emory's School of Medicine’s Department of Family and Preventive Medicine. The program received full accreditation in 1994 and has since trained over 40 residents. The residency program is accredited for a total of four positions. With a smaller program such as ours, considerable attention is devoted to the individual requirements of residents, and the program is flexible enough to accommodate persons with highly diverse backgrounds and interests. The Preventive Medicine Residency Program seeks to train individuals to become board certified specialists in General Preventive Medicine and Public Health, with the potential to become academic, policy, and industry leaders in the field of Preventive Medicine.
