Cardiology, Aerospace Medicine
Gautam was born in India but moved to the United States when he was 3 years old. He grew up in Nashua, NH and subsequently attended Dartmouth College, where he majored in Astronomy and Biochemistry. While he was always interested in space, it was at Dartmouth where he found his passion for space medicine after working with an astronaut-physician. After graduating from Dartmouth, he decided to finally leave New Hampshire and attended medical school at UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas. During medical school, he was able to continue his space medicine research and also quickly became attached to the field of Internal Medicine during his clinical rotations. He currently hopes to pursue a cardiology fellowship and/or aerospace medicine fellowship after completing residency. During his free time, he enjoys playing basketball, lifting weights, exploring national parks, eating Japanese food, and rock climbing. He is very excited to be a Vanderbilt Internal Medicine resident and is looking forward to living in Nashville! Member of AOA.
