Why did you choose VUMC Emergency Medicine?
I did an away rotation here, and I learned so much in just a month. Attendings and residents were eager to teach, and I enjoyed learning from them. Patients came from all over the Southeastern US to seek care at Vanderbilt, and I was exposed to a high volume of different pathologies. I also wanted the opportunity to be exposed to different areas of emergency medicine. Overall, I thought it was a wonderful learning environment, and felt that I would receive excellent training here.
