Why did you choose VUMC Emergency Medicine?
When I came for my interview everyone was so welcoming and I could feel the camaraderie between them. The attendings were very friendly and they had a great working relationship with the residents (this still holds true). I felt that the residency program would be an incredible learning opportunity with the diversity within the patient population and high volume. Vanderbilt also offers many other exciting opportunities such as flying with LifeFlight and participating in Global Health, both of which contributed to my decision to come to Vanderbilt. Nashville is also a super cool city with a lot to do in the city as well as exploring the outdoors just outside of the city.
