Celebrating Our Physicians on Doctors’ Day: Past, Present & Future

At Emory Healthcare, our team’s focus on providing truly patient- and family-centered care never takes a holiday. So, we make it a point to thank our awesome team of doctors for the work they do year round and around the clock, but we’re especially proud to recognize them on National Doctors’ Day.

Doctors’ Day marks the anniversary of Dr. Crawford W. Long’s contribution to medicine by performing the first administration of anesthesia. Each year on Doctors’ Day, we celebrate our physicians for continuing the tradition of advancing the delivery of high-quality health care and dedicating themselves to our patients and their families.

This year, we asked members of our community on Facebook to share with us which Emory doctors are most special to them. The feedback our patients and community shared honoring our doctors is truly heart warming. We’ve included screen shots of our community’s feedback below, or you can view the whole Doctors’ Day Facebook thread here.

And, to make sure that we’re training the next generation of Atlanta’s top doctors, Emory Healthcare is launching a scholarship on behalf of the Emory Healthcare medical staff. Emory Healthcare will sponsor one or two Emory University School of Medicine students for all four years of their education. One in every four physicians in Georgia have been trained at Emory, so what better way to invest in the future and to ensure the legacy of our team continues for generations to come?
