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 every day of the year. 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?
Planning on pursuing community emergency medicine in order to push myself to master procedures that I may be uncomfortable with, without the crutch of consulting services. I ultimately hope to return to academics or an academic community hybrid position in the future so that I can be a lifelong teacher.
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.
