Postgraduate medical education has been an integral part of Atlanta Medical Center for more than 50 years. Our excellence in medical student and resident education has occurred because of the continuing support and resources from the hospital board, administration and the medical and nursing staff. Together, we strive to provide an environment that fosters positive reinforcement for education.
Our medical staff of more than 700 physicians with their diverse education, interests and patient populations provide a significant depth and breadth of patient medical problems and disease. This, in combination with the Sheffield Health Center and the formal didactic experiences, prepare graduates for not only the independent practice of medicine, but also for certification in their specialties.
Atlanta Medical Center plays an active role in the institution, development and refinement of medical and surgical technologies. Residents have the opportunity to integrate these procedures in their education and to participate in ongoing work through the Department of Research.
Atlanta Medical Center is a teaching affiliate of the Medical College of Georgia. Through this relationship, we have both third-year and fourth-year medical students on required and elective rotations. Numerous other students take elective rotations at our hospital.
We also are affiliated with the University of Georgia.
When you become engaged in the process of evaluating institutions for either elective rotations or your residency, we hope you will consider the resources of Atlanta Medical Center. Our Medical Education staff is available, as am I, to answer any questions you may have.
