"I chose Emory Family Medicine for the opportunity to train in a world class institution and I was not wrong! EFM allows you to train in a variety of settings that would prepare you for virtually anywhere in the US. Resident autonomy was balanced with supervision that fostered great learning and confidence. I did an elective in urgent care and I was hooked! It gave me a good mix of urgent and non-emergent cases, plus I loved the unpredictability. I also loved having the collegiality and friendships I developed."  – Adebowale Akintayo, MD, MPH, Urgent Care, Atlanta GA

"Emory’s Family Medicine Residency Program provided me with excellent clinical skills and meaningful opportunities.  I chose Emory because it is a strong institution with state of the art facilities, expansive resources, established and well renowned teachers.  Program leaders and faculty are accomplished, approachable, and supportive, and allow you to maximize your potential.  During residency, I was able to work with several distinguished faculty, master a wide variety of procedures, present at more than five national conferences, publish several papers, train family medicine residents in Ethiopia, serve as chief resident, and transfer my skills to work in Australia.  It was a privilege to be an Emory Family Medicine resident." – Naheed Lakhani Kanji MD, MPH, private practice, Australia

"I chose Emory for the comprehensive training with Atlanta's top specialists and the dedicated faculty in the Family Medicine program. During residency, I was able to gain skills in public health through programs with the Emory Global Health Institute and the ABC News Medical Unit. After residency, the next step towards a career in public health was the Epidemic Intelligence Service, a two-year applied epidemiology program with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention." Vivian Leung, MD, CDC EIS Fellow

"Emory Family Medicine Residency Program is an exceptional place to train. It was a wonderful fit for my family and me for many reasons including the exposure to training provided by specialists throughout the Emory and Grady healthcare systems as well as Emory University's close connection with the CDC. Emory Family Medicine provides residents with all skills needed to practice competent and compassionate family medicine. I am thankful and honored to be a graduate of our program." – A. Kyle Wilson, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor, Emory University School of Medicine.
