Why did you choose VUMC Emergency Medicine?
It's the perfect combination of a high volume trauma center, world class teaching faculty, and the city of Nashville where there is something to do indoors or out 7 days a week year round. All that wrapped up into a 3 year residency. What more could you want?
What are your interests within Emergency Medicine?
Sports medicine, ultrasound, medical education
What would you be doing if you weren't doing Emergency Medicine?
Something else in sports medicine, whether that be an orthopedic surgeon, physical therapist, or athletic trainer.
What's your 5-year plan?
Never forget to maintain the work life balance. Focus on my friends becoming my family just as much as I focus on finding love and starting a family. And probably end up in a hybrid community and academic EM site where I can continue my love of teaching but mostly work clinically.
What's a random fact about you?
My mom's maiden name is also White so I get weird looks at most government administrative offices when they ask that question.
