Clinical Training Sites
Our Emory gynecology and obstetrics residents participate in patient care at a variety of clinical sites, which provide one of the most vital assets of our program - a large and varied patient population.
The Grady Health System [Grady Memorial Hospital - a two-county, public facility] provides quality, comprehensive healthcare in a compassionate, culturally competent, ethical, and fiscally responsible manner.
