Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine

Michael Carr, MD ’14, an assistant professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, was on the front lines of the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. He said that the experience while extremely challenging, brought out the best in his team.

“I’m incredibly proud about the response we’ve had as a specialty and as a profession,” Dr. Carr said. “We were called to perform above and beyond what we ever expected to do in our career. You show up to work and instantly you’re thrown into a team. You’re a family. It’s a relationship that is really hard to describe.”

Dr. Carr earned his Doctor of Medicine from SGU and proceeded to complete an emergency medicine residency at Newark Beth Israel Hospital in New Jersey. He stayed on for an EMS and disaster medicine fellowship before being appointed to the faculty at Emory.

“If somebody asks me where I went to medical school, I say ‘St. George’s University, and I would do it again,’” Dr. Carr said. “I loved it. I had a tremendous experience.”
