getting to the department and staying in nashville
Our offices are approximately a 20 minute car ride from the Nashville International Airport and in close proximity to a number of nice hotels that you can stay at during your interview and visit to Nashville. Additionally many of our residents host applicants during the interview season. We will provide you this information after being selected to interview.
For the recruitment season, the round-trip cost FOR VANDERBILT MEDICAL CENTER APPLICANTS (that’s you!) is $20. The one-way cost is $14.
Either way, that's much cheaper than taking a cab from the airport to your hotel which would cost about $25-30 one way.) If you need the Gray Line Airport Express for one way, it's a $14 charge; no applicant discount. At Nashville International Airport, the Gray Line counter is on the first floor, below baggage claim. You don’t need to make reservations going TO your hotel. Just head to the Gray Line kiosk at the airport—after you get off the plane and get your luggage-and the Gray Line people will help you.
The Grayline Airport Shuttle has service to many campus area hotels. Check the website to make sure your hotel is listed, but the hotels near Vanderbilt (included in my “hotel email”) are on the list.
If you’ll need the Grayline Airport Shuttle for a ride back to the airport on Thursday, you’ll need to call (615) 275-1180 (24 hours in advance) and tell them you need to schedule a pick-up from Vanderbilt’s Medical Center North location. Some applicants will take the Gray Line shuttle back to the airport from their hotel late Thursday afternoon/evening. It’s up to you—whether you want to leave from Vanderbilt OR from your hotel—just depends on how soon you need to fly out.

A final important point about the Gray Line shuttle: Their vans come to Vanderbilt Medical Center (the “Medical Center North” pick-up spot) at: 20 and 50 past each hour. I’ll walk you to that pick-up spot as it’s very close to Medical Center East where you’ll spend all of your Thursday afternoon—up until 5:00 p.m. when the interview day is over.
If you want me to store your luggage for you on Thursdays, let us know.
