Our mission is to provide high-value, patient-centered care; to advance hospital care through research and quality improvement; and to provide rigorous training for the next generation of physicians.


At Vanderbilt, we strive to maintain balance in our pursuit of excellence in clinical care, quality improvement, research, and education. We seek out well-trained physicians with excellent clinical skills as well as academic interests. We support those interests through hands-on mentorship, and tailored opportunities for professional development. The result is a diverse and exceptional group of faculty that will enjoy successful academic careers in Hospital Medicine.
