Why did you choose VUMC  Emergency Medicine?

I was unexpectedly blown away by my interview day and I loved everyone I met. The interview dinner was well-attended by residents and their significant others; everyone was incredibly welcoming and fun. I loved the emphasis on teaching residents to be teachers, and the interviews themselves flew by because everyone was so easy to talk to. Nashville also seemed like an awesome place to do residency!
