Correction: a previous version of this article mistakenly announced that Dr. Emily Blum is Georgia’s only practicing board-certified female urologist joined Georgia Urology. This is not accurate. The distinction is that Dr. Blum is a board-certified pediatric urologist at Georgia Urology. We apologize for the inaccuracy.
Georgia Urology is home to board-certified pediatric urologist, Dr. Emily Blum.
“Girls experience plenty of urological challenges,” explains Dr. Blum. “Female patients may feel more comfortable seeing a female provider. It’s important that patients and their families know they have the opportunity to choose.”
Board-certified pediatric urologists belong to a distinct medical group that requires physicians to get board certified in pediatric urology and adult urology. Additionally, the physician must complete a two-year fellowship.
Dr. Blum’s fellowship projects focused on medical device innovations, particularly in bridging the gap between research and commercialization to improve patient care, which she continues pursuing today. Dr. Blum is a member of the research faculty at Georgia Tech and serves as a Medical Affairs Liaison for the Global Center for Medical Innovations, a Georgia Tech affiliate institution.
She is board-certified by The American Board of Urology, currently making her the only practicing woman in Georgia who is board-certified in pediatric urology.
“It’s an absolute honor to be part of an elite group in the medical field,” says Dr. Blum. “I’m thrilled to represent diversity in urology and to widen physician options for patients and their families.”
