Why did you choose VUMC Emergency Medicine?
I chose VUMC Emergency Medicine because it was apparent the program supported the residents while also preparing them to be the best EM doctors they can be. I wanted to leave my residency program feeling as prepared as possible, which I believe VUMC EM will do. I also really enjoyed the camaraderie and social environment of the program.
What are your interests within Emergency Medicine?
I am interested in ultrasound and medical education.
What would you be doing if you weren't doing Emergency Medicine?
Within medicine, I would have been interested in Internal Medicine. Outside of medicine, I've always thought being a songwriter would be an awesome career.
What's your 5-year plan?
Ultimately, I am undecided. I am wanting to explore as much as possible within EM during my time at Vandy.
What's a random fact about you?
I used to be a childhood singer here in Nashville.
