The Body MRI Director would be a member of the Abdominal Imaging Division which consists of 21 faculty, 6-8 abdominal imaging fellows per year, and provides diagnostic services for Emory Healthcare and Grady Health. Emory Healthcare is the most comprehensive academic health system in Georgia and is made up of 11 hospitals. Grady Memorial Hospital is Atlanta's public hospital, the 10th largest public hospital in the United States, and a level 1 trauma center.


The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences has a strong Research Division including 22 research faculty with approximately 60 post docs and graduate students.  The radiology department obtains approximately $23m in research funding each year, ranking in the top 10 in terms of NIH funding.

The Emory Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences is home to a large diagnostic radiology residency program (64 diagnostic radiology residents), a nuclear medicine residency program, an interventional radiology residency program, multiple fellowship programs, and a medical imaging school.
