We offer our residents an outstanding educational experience with a rich and varied clinical exposure, excellent teaching, and unique research opportunities. With uniquely distinct rotations at the Emory University and Grady campuses, our residents see a highly diverse patient population representing the full spectrum of neurologic disorders. Patients of every age, socioeconomic level, and cultural heritage seek care in the Emory healthcare system, which is ranked second in quality care among the University HealthSystem Consortium for 2012.

Core Values of the Emory Neurology Residency Training Program

  • We recognize that learning is inherently communal in nature. We strive to promote an environment which nurtures the professional interaction necessary to strengthen our neurologic community.
  • We believe that students learn best by interacting with a subject and are committed to drawing medical students and junior colleagues into the process of active learning.
  • We welcome diversity, encourage critical inquiry, and embrace paradox in the constant act of reconciling established concepts with new evidence in the process of life-long learning.
  • We treat people with respect and believe that individuals who are given respect and responsibility respond by giving their best.
  • We strive for excellence and require honesty and integrity in all we do.
  • We recognize that intellectual rigor is required to amass neurological knowledge; likewise, an ethos of trust, compassion, and respect is essential to creating a future neurologist.
  • We recognize our limits as well as our capabilities and act accordingly at all times.
