Vanderbilt Neurology Wellness

A sense of wellness – both personal, professional - is vital to a vibrant academic environment, which is why it is a core value at throughout VUMC and part of our “Pillar Goals”. The Department of Neurology formed our own Wellness Committee in 2017  to achieve these goals.

Our core aim is to foster an environment in which trainees, faculty, staff can all say to themselves

  • My work is meaningful and my own creation
  • I have the personal and environmental resources I need.
  • The person next to me is in the same boat…. and we are going places!

VUMC has a rich array of wellness resources including

  • Finding your people for support and interest-based affinity group
  • Managing both acute and chronic stressors at work and home
  • Ideas for fun, extracurricular activities (with some discounts!)

People, Service, Quality, Innovation

Jamie is a wonderful leader. She has taken the time to develop a great leadership relationship with our group while still taking time to develop personal relationships with each of her staff. I feel this approach to leadership is a shining example of how a professional and yet caring leader can motivate staff to work together as a team and enjoy working. Jamie has a great attitude towards constructive improvements in every aspect of her position. She is always willing to listen, learn and understand, our thoughts and ideas. She is TEAMWORK at its best! I truly enjoy working "with" (she never treats her team like they work "for" her but always "with" her). Jamie is a GREAT leader.

Jamie has been so helpful and hardworking, especially around the incredible amount of recruiting that we have recently done in our department. Jamie is a vital team member esp. with the interviewing and onboarding processes. She has done an excellent job supporting our new hires and helping them to be well set in the department. Jamie is always professional and helpful.

Jamie is professional, attentive, and excels at finding answers to anything and everything unknown. She personifies the VUMC credo.
