Why did you choose VUMC Emergency Medicine?
Vanderbilt really delivered on interview day and gave me the gut feeling that it was the place for me! Everyone I interacted with were (and are) extremely relatable, friendly, and felt like they'd make a great family. The program itself is second to none and offers everything I want for my training and overall life goals. Nashville is also a super cool city. Vandy EM checked all my boxes and I'm grateful every day I'm here!
