Our Fellowship Programs

Excellence, Experience and Expertise 

Being a top doctoral graduate already speaks volumes about who you are: You’re smart, skilled and determined. And, if you’re considering applying for a fellowship, we also know you’re driven to be a leader in your specialty. 

When you choose Vanderbilt, you choose a fellowship experience that favors collaboration over competition. 

Shaping Your Future

Your time as a Vanderbilt fellow prepares you to get the job you want. You’ll gain valuable experience working with patients. You work closely with faculty at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt — in the operating room and around the conference table.

We give you freedom and responsibility to lead your own clinics. You hone your leadership skills by training our residents. And your research efforts further your specific interests.

What to Expect from Your Fellowship Experience

Fellows keep a busy schedule learning, managing patients and preforming surgery. You will experience:

  • Clinical practice providing patient care 
  • Dedicated research time
  • Leadership skill development by teaching and working with residents
  • Surgical experience with many types of procedures
  • Weekly conferences and workshops
