VUMC does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of their race, sex, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, military service, veteran status or genetic information in its employment. In addition, VUMC also does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Please submit your application through ERAS with appropriate letters of recommendation (at least one SLOE is required).
