The Emory Difference

At Emory, many of our physicians are also researchers and educators — which means they take part in valuable clinical trials and help develop new and better ways to prevent and treat disease. Meaning you get treatments years before anyone else. As active faculty members at Emory University’s School of Medicine, they not only teach the next generation of doctors and surgeons, they also provide ongoing professional development for current health care providers. That’s the Emory difference.

Find the care you need, when and where you need it with the region's most comprehensive academic health system, Emory Healthcare. Whether a routine physical, sports injury, cancer treatment or complex surgery, our specialized care is unmatched in the region. We offer patients and families the choice of more than 2,800 doctors and 250 locations, including 11 hospitals as well as primary care, urgent care, and MinuteClinics.
