The vast, energetic campus of Atlanta Medical Center began in 1901 in a five-room cottage. It had one doctor, a few church women as nurses and two patients. The facility now houses more than 700 staff physicians, 460 patient beds, specialty centers that cover virtually every aspect of modern medicine, and seven successful residency programs.
Office space for medical professionals became part of the campus in 1956, and new facilities are constantly being added. LifeFlight, an aeromedical transport system for trauma victims, began in 1981.
The aggressive recruitment of quality residents, further development of oncology, cardiology, orthopaedics, neurosciences and rehabilitation represent Atlanta Medical Center's solid history and a shining future.
Advantages of Atlanta Medical Center
From its beginnings nearly a century ago through its energetic development to the massive campus of today, Atlanta Medical Center has remained sharply focused on teaching. Learning opportunities for residents abound.
Study is vigorous, but the resident's inner life is not neglected. There are excellent recreational facilities on campus at the Highland Athletic Club, where residents have free use of indoor track and swimming pool, treadmills, Airdyne bicycles, aerobic classes, and Universal and free weights.
The primary mission of the Atlanta Medical Center Residency Training Program is to produce talented, creative and dedicated physicians. At Atlanta Medical Center we care deeply about the resident and it shows.
