About Me

As a physician specializing in Infectious Diseases and Critical Care Medicine, I take care of acutely ill patients in all areas of the hospital. The most rewarding part of my job is helping patients and families understand their illness and treatment options and partnering with them to ensure we are providing care that both evidence-based and aligned with the patient's values.

Dr. Adelman attended medical school at Emory University where he also obtained a Master’s in Science from the Laney Graduate School. This was followed by internal medicine residency at Massachusetts General Hospital.  Dr. Adelman then completed an infectious diseases fellowship as well as a Critical Care Fellowship, both at Emory University.  His research interests sit at the intersection of infectious diseases and critical care medicine. Previous projects have examined epidemiology of antimicrobial-resistant bacterial infections, risk factors for hospital-acquired infections, and the interaction between the gut microbiome and immune response in critically ill patients.
