New Affiliate for all cores.

RUSM is excited to announce the addition of Atlanta Medical Center (AMC) to our clinical affiliation network.
AMC will be offering all core rotations starting on December 3rd and will become a track site next spring.
AMC began its service to the Atlanta community on Thanksgiving Day in 1901 as Georgia Baptist Medical Center. Located in a downtown five-room cottage, the infirmary had two patients, one doctor, and a few churchwomen serving as nurses. Nearly a century has gone by and today the medical center has grown into a 460-bed tertiary facility that is sprawled across two city blocks.

AMC services include a 30-bed neonatal intensive care unit, the Atlanta Cancer Center, the Atlanta Rehabilitation Center, three medical office buildings, the Wellness Center which provides a multidisciplinary approach to health and wellness, the Graduate Medical Education Program, and areas of medical excellence that provide care in advanced surgery, cardiology, oncology, neurology, women's health, orthopedics, and trauma.
AMC also offers the following:

  • A facility staffed with the experts to serve as a regional designated Level 1 Trauma Center;
  • Highly rated, nationally-recognized care in the areas of advanced surgery, cardiology, neurology, oncology, women’s health, orthopedics, bloodless medicine and rehabilitation;
  • One of Georgia’s leading Stroke Units as designated by The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest hospital accreditation agency;
  • A top birthing center and a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU);
  • A recognized Center of Excellence in Bariatric Medicine by the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons;
  • And an institution that values the benefits of a robust Graduate Medical Education program, an integral part of Atlanta Medical Center for more than 50 years.

Atlanta Medical Center is actively involved as a teaching hospital sponsoring Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved programs in Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Family Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery. Psychiatry, Pediatrics and OB/GYN fall under the family medicine “umbrella”.
All core rotations meet the requirements for the California Business and Professional Code for residency training and licensure. Texas requires that rotations be completed at a hospital where a residency program is in place for that specialty (either ACGME or AOA). Thus, Internal Medicine, General Surgery and Family Medicine meet this requirement.
