With Emory University's campus located five miles northeast of downtown Atlanta, Neurosurgery residents have immediate access to resources in one of the nation's fastest-growing metropolitan areas. In Atlanta, fine dining, shopping and rich history combine with inspiration-inducing attractions to create a city with southern charm and world-class sophistication.
Atlanta offers residents both a high quality of life and a lower cost of living than the national average; significantly lower than comparable large metropolitan areas. Thus, residents reap many benefits of living in a large city - restaurants, entertainment, sporting events and family activities - without the elevated cost of living associated with comparable cities.
More than five million people call Atlanta home, giving rise to a diversity of culture, social and recreational interests. The city's voluminous list of attractions includes:
- High Museum of Art
- Atlanta History Center and Museum
- CNN Studio Tour
- College Football Hall of Fame
- Fernbank Museum of Natural History
- Georgia Aquarium
- Jimmy Carter Library and Museum
- Martin Luther King, Jr., Center for Nonviolent Social Change
- Michael C. Carlos Museum

The Emory Village and Emory Point are both located adjacent to the University campus. Both locations offer a variety of eateries, services, dry cleaning, salons and coffee shops. Many of the restaurants also offer their entrees for carry out and delivery service, with special discounts for University students.
