Steven Zack Watson, MD
Med-Peds, Hematology/Oncology, Critical Care, Medical Education
Zack was born and raised with his two younger brothers in the suburbs of Jackson, MS, and dreamed of becoming a doctor ever since he was in junior high. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Mississippi State University. While at Mississippi State, Zack and a team of fellow classmates researched and built a successful prototype for an automated blood typing device and later formed an LLC to explore further uses for the technology they developed. Also while in college, Zack was very involved with the MSU Roadrunners student recruiting organization and spent a summer abroad in France, which further fueled his love of world travel. He returned to Jackson for medical school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where he learned he had a love for all patients young and old, ultimately leading him to pursue a career in Med-Peds. While at UMMC, Zack served on the Associated Student Body and developed an interest in medical education through tutoring other students. In addition to his passion for medicine, Zack also has a great love for the performing arts, having worked as a choreographer for numerous show choirs and theater productions. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, going to shows and concerts, grabbing dinner and drinks at new restaurants, exercising and doing yoga, and spending time with friends, family, and his dog, Sadie. Zack could not be more thrilled to begin his training at Vanderbilt and looks forward to a new adventure in Nashville! Member of AOA.
