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!

Resource Page

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!)

Mark Dempsey

Budget/Accounting Analyst

Credo Behavior:

Pillar Goals:
People, Service, Quality

Nomination 1: Mark has been extremely helpful during the pandemic. Because he chose not to work from home, he is consistently on campus. I know that many in our department, myself included, have reached out to him for last-minute things that could not be handled remotely. He has helped me several times, when it wasn't necessarily his responsibility to do so. 
I believe he has shown a real commitment to his colleagues and to the department during a chaotic time, and has done so with a positive attitude.

Nomination 2: Mark is exceptionally efficient and always helpful. He is always willing to step in an help - even if the task is not part of his typical work.
