Dr. Gross joined Northeast Georgia Physicians Group in September 2018 after completing his Internal Medicine Residency at Emory University. He is excited to be involved in shaping a new residency program and to play an influential role at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.
Dr. Gross’s goal is to create a collaborative, fun, and productive program that trains residents well for future careers in either Internal Medicine, its subspecialties or other potential end paths for an individual with Internal Medicine training. Dr. Gross feels that residents will thrive who have a sincere interest in the human condition and who realize the potential of what a program like NGMC GME can offer. Though it’s a new program, he is excited to engage the diverse patient population, vast resources, and opportunities for leadership with new residents.
Dr. Gross’s clinical interest is in diet, nutrition, lifestyle, preventive medicine, and infectious disease. His research interests involve food insecurity as well as nutrition and their relation to health outcomes. Together with Johns Hopkins faculty (which he started during his MPH program), Dr. Gross is currently working to publish a pilot study on the effect of home-delivered meals on health outcomes. He also continues to volunteer at Grady Memorial Hospital on their Healthy Living Initiative and assists them in developing research projects. Dr. Gross’ goal is to start a healthy living initiative and related research at NGMC Gainesville.
“I’m excited to be a faculty member because I enjoy the academic environment – teaching others to think critically and find the answers to clinical questions. Being faculty at NGMC GME will enable me to practice evidenced-based medicine while creating a collaborative and enjoyable atmosphere to highlight how rewarding it is to work within medicine – specifically, Internal Medicine.”
