School Overview

School Info

We invite you to be our guest and discover the array of educational, clinical and research opportunities that await you at Emory University School of Medicine. With 150 years of experience in medical education, Emory is home to a vibrant community of students, faculty, staff, partnerships, and affiliates- in the heart of Atlanta. Our programs of study are designed to educate competent, caring and compassionate clinicians and scientists for the service and advancement of healthcare, both locally and around the world.

Curriculum

Focusing on small-group learning and increased interaction with faculty, students are immersed in clinical experience from the very beginning. A multitude of clinical sites provide students with extensive training in patient care, including an Outpatient Experience that begins early in the first year. A 5-month Discovery period allows time for clinical or bench research, international experience, or other academic inquiry.

Facilities

The Medical Education Building on the Clifton Corridor was opened in 2007. Costing in excess of $60 million, this 162,000 square-foot environmentally “green” structure incorporates the historic facades of the school’s original Anatomy and Physiology Buildings, but also contains state-of-the-art classroom, laboratory, and study space that serves as a model for 21st Century scientific and medical education. Emory SOM is affiliated with multiple institutions including Grady Memorial Hospital, Emory University Hospital, Emory Midtown Hospital, Egleston Children's Hospital at Emory University, Wesley Woods Geriatric Center, and Atlanta VA Hospital.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
