Why did you choose VUMC  Emergency Medicine?

I chose VUMC EM for so many reasons. During my interview day everyone was so kind and welcoming, and I could tell that faculty were truly invested in resident success. Of course VUMC has unparalleled clinical training, high volume, high acuity, excellent teaching - I truly felt that this program would push me to become the best EM physician I could be. I also have lots of family in Nashville and spent every holiday here growing up, so matching at Vanderbilt was a dream come true!
