In order to provide the best training for our residents, we utilize a variety of facilities in Metropolitan Atlanta. Our primary site is Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s) at Hughes Spalding, but residents receive training at all three Children’s locations, other community hospitals, private practices, colleges and youth detention centers throughout Atlanta.
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
Currently, Children’s has a total of three hospital campuses (Hughes Spalding, Scottish Rite and Egleston) and 17 neighborhood locations (immediate care, primary care and subspecialty clinics), making Children’s one of the country’s leading pediatric hospitals as ranked by US News and World Report, caring for more than half a million patients annually. Also, Children’s is the largest Medicaid provider in Georgia, providing services to eight out 10 children on Medicaid in Atlanta and four out of 10 in the state.
Nearly 150 physicians at Children’s, more than any other hospital in Georgia, are included among the nation’s best doctors as listed by Best Doctors in America®, the world’s leading resource for patients, families and physicians seeking expert medical information and guidance to treat illnesses and injuries of all kinds.
DeKalb Medical Center (DMC)
Located in Decatur, DMC is a large, successful community hospital founded in the 1940’s. The medical center offers a multitude of services to the community, with a diverse group of patients. Residents do their term nursery training at DMC. The center is the third largest maternity service in the state of Georgia, and has the second highest-volume maternity unit in metro Atlanta, welcoming more than 6,000 newborns a year.
Rockdale Medical Center (RMC)
For more than 50 years, RMC has provided comprehensive quality healthcare to Rockdale County and the surrounding community. Ours is truly a unique organization that balances a sense of community with state of the art technology. Situated less than 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta, RMC is conveniently located off I-20 near many of the fastest growing suburbs. Inpatient shifts run from six to six to allowing patients time to accommodate their schedules.
