|Odds are high any Atlantan's personal physician learned a lot of medicine at Grady Memorial Hospital. It's where one in every four Georgia physicians trained. Now it's everyone else's turn. In this new course, hosted by Emory and Morehouse Schools of Medicine, you can meet the doctors who teach and see patients at Georgia's largest hospital. Learn what happens in the city's only Level I trauma center after a gunshot or car crash - or if the city suffers mass casualties. "Grady babies" range from the Grady CEO's new daughter to some of the smallest, most medically fragile. You'll get a quick study of the expertise that makes Grady so extraordinary, including the neonatal intensive care unit, the city's only burn center and a poison center that has saved numerous Georgians (and a number of their pets). You'll get new insights into stroke, cancer, infectious disease, lupus/rheumatic disease, and the best of preventive medicine.
Hosted by Randolph Martin, MD, FACC, Director of Echocardiology at Emory, the course will start October 12, 2004, and will continue for five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. Refreshments will begin at 6:30. Classes are held in the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building auditorium, 1440 Clifton Road, with free parking in the Michael Street parking deck and shuttle service to the building.
