Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct faculty members volunteer their time and expertise and participate with the regular Departmental faculty in training and supervising residents and medical students.  Adjunct faculty can participate in the Department by providing coverage at clinical sites including labor and delivery and outpatient clinics at Grady Memorial Hospital, as well.  They are physicians in practice in the Atlanta area and many of them completed residency training in the Department.
