Emory University School of Medicine Reviews
Emory University School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that welcomed its inaugural class in 1855. The School of Medicine begins clinical training within the first week of school, and rotations start in the second year. Emory also gives students five months to do an independent research project. The School of Medicine offers a Big Sib/Little Sib program and encourages students to take time outside of class to do things they enjoy.
The Emory University School of Medicine is a leading institution with the highest standards in education, biomedical research, and patient care. We are committed to recruiting and developing a diverse group of students and innovative leaders in biomedical science, public health, medical education, and clinical care. We foster a culture that integrates leading edge basic, translational, and clinical research to further the ability to deliver quality health care, to predict illness and treat the sick, and to promote health of our patients and community.

We are living at a unique time in biomedical history. We've seen a revolution in complementary forces that are helping us change the way we think of medicine. For the first time, we have a complete "parts list" of genes and other building blocks, which means we can personalize therapies. At the same time, we have an IT revolution that lets us gather data, mine it and visualize it in sophisticated ways, and act on it in real time in the ICU or predict problems with anticipatory medicine. And new technology allows us to probe the human organism through imaging and other areas, to visualize what's going on. Add to those the twenty-first century patients, who are well-informed, empowered, and incredible advocates for change. These forces are converging to allow us to take on the big problems, and have a good chance of finding solutions to ones that have frustrated us for so long. Uniquely positioned to make a difference. Embedded within Emory University, we have links to the business school, the department of chemistry, and many other academic resources that are traditionally outside the realm of health care. We have hospitals where we teach the next generation of health professionals to provide the most advanced, compassionate patient care. We have research institutes and government and industry partnerships racing to find the next discovery or cure. We have all of this in one location, with a structure that allows those important interdisciplinary interactions to occur. With these resources and our team of bold thinkers who are willing to take risks in order to achieve something great, we believe there are no limits to what we can accomplish.
