William T. Moore, CEO 

Dear Applicant,

These are exciting times at Atlanta Medical Center. On September 5, 1997, Atlanta Medical Center joined Tenet Georgia, bringing together two outstanding organizations with strong, compatible values.

Atlanta Medical Center brings with it a great tradition of commitment to excellence in patient care and service to the community. Tenet Georgia brings financial strength and market presence that is integral to the Atlanta Medical Center mission. This creates a core system of impressive assets that serves as a foundation upon which to build.

The commitment to training physicians of the highest caliber is as strong as ever. The Graduate Medical Education program at Atlanta Medical Center serves as an important source of medical professionals to hospitals across the country, with an emphasis on Atlanta. My hope is that through your experience at Atlanta Medical Center you will be convinced that this is the type of organization that you would want to be affiliated with for the rest of your career.

Thank you for your interest in Atlanta Medical Center being the next step in your career. Best wishes for continued success.

Sincerely,

William T. Moore
Chief Executive Officer

 
Atlanta Medical Center 

Our History

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.
