Why did you choose VUMC  Emergency Medicine?

Vanderbilt has an academic feel mixed with volume and acuity. This paired with the absolute best co-residents and attending physicians made the choice an easy one!

What are your interests within Emergency Medicine?

ED Operations, Ultrasound, ED Decision Making and Expectations (and a side interest in Wilderness Med!)

What would you be doing if you weren't doing Emergency Medicine?

Wishing I were in Emergency Medicine! But if it truly weren't an option I'd probably be involved in Healthcare in some other capacity through consulting or device development.

What's your 5-year plan?

For the first portion of those 5 years working to become a good EM Resident and Physician! Ultimately I hope to gain experience in a wide variety of practice settings.

What's a random fact about you?

I have successfully completed the whole milk gallon challenge.
