J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program

Emory's internal medicine residency program is named for John Willis Hurst, MD (1920-2011), a devoted medical educator and an international leader in cardiology. Hurst began teaching at Emory in 1950, believing that his interests in teaching, writing, and research could best be pursued in the setting of academic medicine. He served as chair of the Emory University Department of Medicine for almost 30 years (1957-1986), and he authored or edited more than 450 scientific articles and 74 books. The most famous of his scholarly writings is The Heart, the most widely used cardiology textbook in the world, first published in 1966 and translated into five languages.

Hurst is widely remembered for his love of teaching. "I think teaching is the greatest profession there is," he once said. "I've always found it exciting to try to create an environment where young trainees, students, house officers, and fellows can learn. That's what I've tried to do." In his 55-year career at Emory, he taught more than 5,000 medical students and 2,500 residents and fellows – roughly a fifth of all doctors currently practicing in Georgia. He received the highest teaching awards from the American College of Cardiology and the American College of Physicians. At Emory, he was a past recipient of the Crystal Apple teaching award, and in 2002, the residency training program in medicine was named in his honor.

Categorical Track

Emory's internal medicine residency program utilizes a standardized set of experiential clinical rotations over three years. It also includes frequent and timely educational and scholarly mentoring by residency leadership.

Thousands of categorical track graduates practice across the globe in diverse careers that span academic practice, community practice, hospital medicine, international health, public health, research, and subspecialty practices in all major subspecialties.

In our curriculum, all MICU rotations are 24-hour calls + up to four hours for transitions of care; there is a 24-hour APP and fellow coverage in each of the ICUs as well. Interns on select ward rotations stay in-house to provide overnight cross-cover every 10th night. All other night admission and cross-cover duties in our system are covered with night float systems.

In July 2020, our categorical program adopted an X+Y/block schedule, with 4 weeks of inpatient and subspecialty rotations (X block), followed by 1 week of ambulatory and continuity clinic (Y block).  Our primary care track residents complete a 4+1 block schedule for PGY1, followed by a 4+4 block schedule for PGY2 and PGY3 to offer increased outpatient opportunities.

Why did you choose to train at Emory?

I knew I wanted to be a part of a community that would continually challenge me to grow in my clinical skill set. I was also thrilled at the prospect of learning more about HIV medicine at the one-of-a-kind Ponce Clinic and SIS services.”

What’s been your favorite residency experience?

“On my most recent Grady wards month, we had a gentleman with failure to thrive who was feeling a bit sour due to his prolonged hospital stay. When we asked him what he enjoyed to eat, he replied with “Honey Bun.” He was so ecstatic when I brought him his first Honey Bun. To my chagrin, he finished the whole bun within minutes! It’s a bit silly, but it’s those little things that elevate my relationship with the patient that keep me going.”

Why did you choose to train at Emory?

“Growing up, I heard many stories about the experiences my father had when he was here at Emory for his internal medicine training. Though always encouraging me to follow my own ambitions, I found my calling in medicine as well. Wanting to experience what Emory Medicine was like first-hand, I did an away rotation my fourth year of medical school and from the first time I set foot here, I felt part of the family. It was that sentiment, along with a strong scholarly atmosphere, breadth of pathology, opportunity to provide medicine to the underserved, fantastic leadership, and so much more that made me chose Emory for my clinical training.”
