About the Paul W. Seavey Comprehensive Internal Medicine Clinic

The Seavey Clinic, named for long-time Emory internist and professor of medicine Paul W. Seavey, MD, has treated three Emory presidents and countless other prominent community members. Dr. Seavey’s mission, and that of the clinic that bears his name, is to provide the highest quality of comprehensive care to the medically complex and medically discerning, and to provide professors of internal medicine who can teach and mentor future generations of top-notch internists and advance the field of internal medicine.

Dr. Seavey’s trusted relationships with prominent Atlanta leaders led to philanthropic support that continues to help fund the Seavey Clinic and the work of its physicians. The Seavey Clinic is unique in its ability to provide numerous benefits to its students, physicians, and patients. It is a classroom, a laboratory, and a clinical practice site that is focused on providing the very best care, while furthering the field of medicine, and educating those who will provide critical skills for generations to come.

All Seavey Clinic physicians are Board Certified in Internal Medicine and have University faculty appointments. The Seavey Clinic also has the highest ranking in customer satisfaction – top 10%.

Patient-Centered Comprehensive Care

As we continue to face national and statewide shortages of primary care physicians, the Seavey Clinic is working to build its capacity to treat more patients and train more providers. In addition to the primary care clinic, Seavey Clinic includes the Emory Executive Health Center and Special Diagnostic Services. Using a team-based care model, Seavey Clinic providers treat the whole patient, diagnosing and treating acute illness, helping patients manage chronic disease, identifying health risks, and offering preventative care.

Training Tomorrow’s Providers

At the Seavey Clinic, education is integrated into every facet of our work, and we are constantly exploring new ways to expand opportunities for academic engagement across the Emory School of Medicine, the Rollins School of Public Health, the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, and Emory’s allied health programs. Medical Students and Internal Medicine Residents who would like to participate in rotations or electives can contact Dr. Jason Higdon at

Research and Innovation

In addition to its commitment to patient care and education, the Seavey Clinic’s distinguished physician-scientists are engaged in numerous research studies and projects. Examples of the past projects include Cognitive Impairment in Multiple Sclerosis, Stress and Biologic Aging, Exercise is Medicine, and others.

The Future of the Paul W. Seavey Internal Medicine Clinic

As these diverse projects show, we continue to fulfill the Seavey Clinic’s mission of providing high quality patient care, research, and education. Moreover, we continue to meet these goals with great successes in terms of quality, scale, impact, and continued growth. As we look toward the future, our goals include creating professional development tracks and increasing funding and operational support to allow our faculty to train more students. To support these goals and sustain the broader Seavey Clinic mission, philanthropic support remains critical.
