GME Annual Report
Resident Alumni Map
The Office of Graduate Medical Education is dedicated to serving the residency training programs sponsored by Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) and is essential to accomplishing the mission of the institution. MSM sponsors seven residency programs in: Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Public Health and Preventive Medicine, and General Surgery. In addition to our primary affiliated hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital, our residents train at several community practice locations — in and around the exciting Atlanta metropolitan area — that offer ample 'hands-on' experiences and the teaching support of an award-winning faculty.
Our programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and as the sponsoring institution, MSM adheres to the "Institutional Requirements" of The Essentials of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME, Current Edition). We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and are listed in the American Medical Association’s Graduate Medical Education Directory and the Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive Database Access System (FREIDA). MSM assigns the responsibility for monitoring residency education to its Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC).
Seventy (70) percent of our residency program graduates have pursued general specialty practice. We encourage second- and third-year medical students to consider these questions when deciding on a career path:
- Is it your goal to be just another private practitioner, or to also be an active force for change in the health and well-being of this nation?
- How will health policies and practices change the approaches made toward the clinical treatment of the undeserved?
- How can you effect positive change in health care?
