    ^ All the replies I've read were: Yes. There are plenty of opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in research and internship. On Facebook, the Emory Class of 2014 group had a response in the discussion section that said:
    "worrying about getting experience here is not an issue. i've gotten my share already, although not at emory yet. ive participated in real surgeries (i mean legit participated), performed autopsies, worked with pediatrics, worked in EMS (im an emt) etc etc etc. emory prepares you.
    for places around here you could get experience at... well heres a list:
    1. Many Opportunities: Georgia Regional Hospital
    3. Recruit Volunteers & Speak Out: American Kidney Fund
    4. Wellness Education: Dekalb County Board of Health
    5. Hospital Volunteering: Atlanta Medical Center
    6. Activities with Patients & Families: Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston
    7. Greet Patients & Patient Service: Emory University Hospital
    8. Read to Children: Reach Out & Read at Children's Healthcare
    9. Many Opportunities: American Red Cross
    10. Sort Medical Supplies: Medshare International

    On another note, what about premed advising? I heard it was... unfriendly and unhelpful... :(

    Note: this thread was started in 2009- so the OP would already have matriculated somewhere. If s/he is still reading these...maybe you can let everyone know how it turned out?

    Emory just started up their Pre Health Mentoring Office, and they are a huge help! They hold programs throughout the year for premeds. You can set up a meeting with a premed advisor at any time, and they are very receptive and truly want you to succeed. Each student is assigned an individual advisor as well who really learns a lot about you as a student and your life at Emory.

    From what I have heard, just in the first year of the Prehealth office's existence they have already seen an increase in med school acceptances, but the official info has yet to be released.
