Emory College Students

  • Emory University (EU) students must meet the student requirements as set by the Pre-Health Mentoring Office (PHMO) and Emory Healthcare.
  • Emory students must complete the PHMO Observership Form and Essay Question. After completion of the application, Emory students need to schedule an appointment with their PHMO advisor and go over the pre-requisites.
  • If all Observership Prerequisites have been met, the Emory University student will receive an Observership Attestation from the PHMO. From this point, the EU student must satisfy the requirements and complete all forms required by the Emory Healthcare Observership Policy. The sponsor or hosting department may assist the EU student to gather requirements.
  • Emory University students must receive the Observership Attestation from the PHMO and be granted approval from the Emory Healthcare Department in which the observation will take place, before Chief Medical Office (CMO) approval of observation arrangement.
  • Emory University students will be required to submit a final reflection report at the end of the Observership experience.
