Since its founding in 1874, Vanderbilt University Medical Center has built a national reputation for patient care, research, and education. Aside from its national renown, Vanderbilt serves as the regional locus for healthcare. Between five hospitals and five clinics scattered around Greater Nashville, VUMC treats over one million patients per year, plus thousands more via tele-health throughout the region. VUMC also has a growing program in global health, giving trainees opportunities to sharpen and share their skills in underserved communities around the world. With access to cutting-edge research, state-of-the-art equipment and technology, a large, diverse patient population, and expert faculty, trainees at VUMC have all the necessary resources to establish themselves as the next leaders in their respective fields.
Residents and fellows in the Department of Neurology will particularly find themselves working alongside supportive faculty in 12 subspecialties. These faculty members include neurohospitalists, physician scientists, lab researchers, clinical practitioners, and everything in between, providing trainees with abundant mentorship opportunities in the career paths of their choice. The residency and fellowship programs also provide comprehensive health and wellness support for trainees.
