Emory Division of Hospital Medicine, part of Emory University and Emory Healthcare, employs hospitalists across seven nationally recognized hospitals, which vary in size from 50 to 950+ beds and cover a range of academic and community settings.

Employment model: Emory hospitalists enjoy academic faculty appointments with Emory University School of Medicine, and most also have dual employment with either Emory Healthcare (The Emory Clinic) or the Atlanta VA.

Schedule and coverage: Schedules vary based on practice location and role, but they range from traditional scheduling models (15 shifts per month or seven-on/seven-off) to continuity scheduling (Monday-Friday, with limited weekends) and continuity-centered staffing.

Compensation: Emory hospitalists enjoy a lucrative compensation and benefits package that includes competitive base salaries, quarterly and annual bonuses based on productivity and quality, comprehensive liability insurance, health, dental, vision, and disability benefits, 403b with annual Emory contributions, CME funding, courtesy scholarship, and more.

Practice highlights: Emory hospitalists are actively involved in teaching, quality improvement, patient safety, health services research and other professional activities. They also have access to faculty development programs within the division and work with leaders focused on mentoring, medical education and fostering research. Many end up progressing into health system and university leadership roles.
