I want to welcome you to the Emory Emergency Medicine Department! Emory Department of Emergency Medicine is a leader in clinical care, education, and research. Our Department is now the largest integrated Department of Emergency Medicine in the country, with more than 100 faculty members, 59 residents, 50 NP and PA clinical providers, and 50 research and administrative staff. We provide emergency clinical services at Emory University Hospital, Emory Midtown, Emory John’s Creek, Grady Memorial Hospital--our primary residency teaching hospital, and now also the Veteran’s Administration Medical Center. Our combined emergency departments see over 250,000 patients annually.
Our Residency Program is primarily conducted at Grady Memorial Hospital—our Level 1 Trauma Center. We also provide residency coverage at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Our Program is designed to meet all the academic requirements of the American Board of Emergency Medicine and the Residency Review Committee of Emergency Medicine.
Our Research Program is currently ranked #1 NIH funded emergency department nationally. Our faculty research interests cover a wide spectrum including traumatic brain injury (TBI), infectious diseases, cardiac emergencies, public health issues, and ultrasound. The Brain Lab laid the groundwork for our multicenter clinical trial studying progesterone as a treatment for TBI. The Emergency Neurosciences researchgroup conducts exciting NIH funded research at Emory/Grady and other participating partners. And, we are fortunate to house one of the CDC funded Injury Control Research Centers here.
For our patients, when the need for emergency services arises, we are there for you providing care respectfully and compassionately. For faculty and residents desiring to be challenged with the best programs in the country, we welcome you.Kate Heilpern
