Current House Staff and HSO

About the House Staff Organization:

The Housestaff Organization (HSO) is the designated organization which represents all residents and fellows in graduate medical education training programs at Emory University School of Medicine and Affiliated Hospitals. The Organization is available to seek resolutions to issues that cannot be resolved within the training program, and will present and advocate Housestaff concerns to appropriate Graduate Medical Education, University, Hospital administrators, and other related parties.

Additionally, we coordinate with the graduate medical education office on advocacy, social, and other activities.

Housestaff organization is a strong advocate on behalf of the residents and fellows on salary and benefit issues.

All residents and fellows are automatic members of the HSO and are all welcome at all HSO meetings.
