Locations

Five hospitals provide the Emory Otolaryngology residency program with diverse clinical experiences and patient populations. While these facilities are within a 20-minute drive of each other, residents do not commute between them during one shift. Instead, our resident rotations are location-based, and residents remain at the same facility throughout the day.

Emory University Hospital Midtown

Emory University Hospital Midtown

Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM) is a community-based, tertiary, acute care teaching facility located in the heart of midtown Atlanta. It has over 500 licensed beds, dedicated specialty ICU's (e.g. neuro-ICU, CCU), and a level III neonatal ICU. EUHM is staffed primarily by Emory medical faculty, but is also the primary practice location of private practice physicians and Kaiser Permanente physicians. Patients in fiscal year 2018: 22,750 admissions (including 4,623 deliveries) and 273,790 outpatient service visits.

As the hub of Emory Otolaryngology, EUHM houses the Emory Voice Center; Emory Sinus, Nasal, and Allergy Center; the Otology/Neurotology Clinic; and the Emory Head and Neck Multidisciplinary Clinic (a truly integrative clinic combining head and neck surgery, hematology oncology, radiation oncology, head and neck radiology, dentistry, social work, and nutrition). Our state-of-the-art temporal bone and sinus dissection laboratory, a vital resource for our residents and fellows, is also located at EUHM.

Residents rotating at EUHM work on the sinus, otology, laryngology, or head and neck services. The head and neck rotation encompasses the busy free-flap reconstruction, endocrine surgery, and TORS practices with several fellowship-trained head and neck surgeons. Three fellowship-trained neurotologists cover the breadth of otology services, which include a dizziness and balance center and an audiology department.

While rotating at the Emory Voice Center, residents refine skills in the diagnosis and management of laryngeal pathology and voice disorders. The Sinus, Nasal, and Allergy Center allows for a focused resident experience in the management of inflammatory sinonasal disease, nasal obstruction, allergic disease and allergen immunotherapy, and cutting-edge endoscopic management of skull base tumors and cerebrospinal fluid leaks.

Fellows are a vital component of our head and neck, laryngology, rhinology, and speech education components and primarily operate out of this campus.

Winship at Midtown, a 17 story, 450,000 square foot tower, is currently under construction on the campus of EUHM and planned to open in 2023. This facility will provide additional operating rooms, infusion facilities, clinical examination rooms, clinical research, and spaces for support and rehabilitation services for oncology patients.

Emory University Hospital

Emory University Hospital

Located on the campus of Emory University, Emory University Hospital (EUH) has over 700 licensed beds and is staffed by Emory School of Medicine faculty physicians. EUH also has a Serious Communicable Diseases Unit, where ongoing research, training, and preparedness for challenging infectious diseases continues since the first Ebola patients in the U.S. were treated there in 2014. Patients in fiscal year 2018: 24,138 inpatient admissions and 200,457 outpatient service visits.

Select otology/neurosurgery combined cases, rhinologic surgery, and endoscopic skull base surgery occur on this campus. Residents also obtain comprehensive exposure to trans-sphenoidal cases, complex neurotology cases, and a degree of general otolaryngology at EUH.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) services more than half a million patients annually and operates three hospitals in metro-Atlanta. CHOA at Egleston is located on Emory's main campus. Staffed by over 300 Emory faculty physicians that provide 95% of patient care, the hospital offers many services, including an emergency department and cardiac and transplant centers.

The Center for Advanced Pediatrics (CAP), a 260,0000-square-foot outpatient clinic, opened in 2018. On the CAP campus, a new 450-bed hospital with two 19-story towers is currently under construction, and is expected to be complete in 2025.

Residents rotating at Egleston manage inpatients on the service as well as a busy consult service covering the spectrum of pediatric otologic and aerodigestive disease.

Atlanta VA Heathcare System

Atlanta VA Heathcare System

The Atlanta VA Heathcare System is located only minutes from Emory University Hospital. It is staffed by over 300 Emory physicians providing the majority of patient care. The hospital has over 400 hospital beds, including medical/surgical inpatient beds, community living center beds, a domiciliary, and psychosocial residential rehabilitation beds. Annual patient totals: over 8,000 admissions and nearly two million outpatient service visits.

Residents rotating at the VA HCS run the inpatient and outpatient services and manage a broad scope of benign and malignant ear, nose, and throat problems. They work particularly closely with a large and comprehensive audiology department in the management of age-related and traumatic hearing loss.

Grady Memorial Hospital

Grady Memorial Hospital

Part of Grady Health System and among the largest public hospitals in the Southeast, Grady Memorial Hospital has over 600 licensed beds and an annual service volume of over 30,000 admissions and more than 600,000 outpatient service visits. Grady is staffed by over 700 Emory medical faculty, who supervise over 350 Emory residents and fellows. Together, these Emory physicians provide about 80% of care at Grady, with the other 20% provided by Morehouse School of Medicine and Grady-employed physicians.

Residents rotating at Grady are granted the supervised autonomy to run the inpatient and outpatient otolaryngology service. The scope of the service is broad, encompassing all aspects of benign and malignant disease of the head and neck in addition to management of trauma to the soft tissues and skeletal support of the face.
