The Department of Emergency Medicine
VUMC’s Department of Emergency Medicine is a national leader in clinical care, education and research. The Department has over 90 faculty across 7 divisions: administration, airway management; emergency medical services; global emergency medicine; emergency medicine research; simulation; and ultrasound.
Located in Nashville, TN, VUMC is the only adult and pediatric Level I trauma center in Middle Tennessee, VUMC’s combined emergency departments treat approximately 190,000 patients annually. Department of Emergency Medicine physicians currently provide emergency services at Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital, Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital, Vanderbilt Tullahoma-Harton Hospital, Vanderbilt Bedford Hospital, and the Emergency Department of the Nashville Veterans Administration Medical Center.
The emergency medicine research division is one of the most productive and impactful emergency care research groups in the world, with numerous grants and contracts from federal agencies and major industry partners. The research division has generated practicing changing data in many fields, including acute heart failure management, resuscitation strategies, airway management, geriatric emergency care, COVID-19 therapies, and ED operations. Faculty and researchers in the department produce more than 100 peer-reviewed publications annually, are currently #11 in NIH funding nationally, and are well regarded by their peers nationally and globally.
Education is a top priority for the department. There are currently 39 residents in this highly regarded and sought-after program. Much of the residency program’s stellar reputation rests on the efforts of faculty members and upper-level residents who view excellent teaching as a core component of their responsibilities. The third/fourth-year medical student rotation is the highest rated required clinical rotation in the medical school. The Department also has an ACGME accredited fellowship in EMS, a EUFAC accredited fellowship in Ultrasound, and GME approved fellowships in Global Emergency Medicine and Simulation. We also train fellows in Critical Care Medicine, Biomedical Informatics, Sports Medicine, Palliative Medicine, Addiction Medicine, and Pediatric EM through collaborative agreements with other Departments and Divisions at VUMC.
VUMC – An Overview
Vanderbilt University Medical Center has built a strong reputation as a leader in medical education, research, and patient care throughout the nation over the course of its 146-year history and operates as one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers. VUMC is the largest comprehensive research, teaching, and patient care health system in the State of Tennessee. VUMC consists of a growing array of inpatient hospitals and ambulatory facilities. At its core, the Medical Center is driven by discovery and the immediate translation of new knowledge into innovation in patient care and physician and nurse education. It is a unified medical center with a unified strategy. Investments in clinical care, research, quality and patient safety, and customer service all drive toward the shared goal of delivering excellent, state of the art healthcare.
Known for its highly acclaimed teaching hospitals and its groundbreaking efforts in biomedical informatics, VUMC clinicians provide more than 2.4 million ambulatory visits, perform more than 67,000 surgical procedures, and see 190,000 patients in its adult and pediatric Emergency Departments each year. The Medical Center is the largest private employer in Middle Tennessee, with more than 28,000 employees, approximately 3,000 of whom are clinical faculty, including advanced practice nurses. Vanderbilt biomedical scientists conduct more than $500 million of federally and corporately sponsored research each year, and the medical school ranks #8 in the US in National Institutes of Health funding.
Based on the Medical Center’s historical performance and VUMC innovative leadership, VUMC is the recipient of top accolades by the National Academies, the Magnet Recognition Program, and U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals. In 2022, U.S. News & World Report regionally ranked VUMC as No. 19 on the Best Hospitals Honor roll and the best hospital in Tennessee. VUMC is nationally ranked in 9 adult and 10 pediatric specialties and rated high performing in 4 adult specialties and 19 procedures and conditions. Becker’s Hospital Review named VUMC among the “100 Great Hospitals in America,” for seven straight years since 2015.
The highly acclaimed Vanderbilt University Hospitals and Vanderbilt Clinic are teaching and patient-care facilities with over 1,100 beds and are supported by the most up-to-date systems and technology.
Other key components include the following:
In 2008, the Medical Center moved 23 clinics into the renovated 100 Oaks Mall in the Berry Hill section of Nashville, filling 440,000 square feet of space nine miles from the main campus, and beginning a major diversification of its geographic footprint that now includes hundreds of clinical care locations throughout Middle Tennessee. VUMC’s four major hospitals are located on the historic Vanderbilt University campus, greatly increasing opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and scientific discovery.
Currently, VUMC has six operational divisions including five Clinical Enterprise Divisions: Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital, Vanderbilt Health Services, the Clinical Professional Practice and one Academic Enterprise Division.
The clinical professional practice for VUMC’s faculty physicians is organized for medical staff leadership and credentialing as the Vanderbilt Medical Group (VMG). VUMC’s clinical professional practice and academic department administration is structured through clinical departments led by clinical department chairs and supported by their associated Business Officers who bear primary responsibility for business management of these departments.
VUMC also leads a statewide clinical network, the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network (VHAN), which is among the largest provider-managed affiliated networks in the US. Established in 2012, VHAN has developed a large network of participating providers, including 12 hospital systems (60 hospitals in the aggregate) and more than 6,000 providers across Tennessee. The over 300,000 lives under management are currently a combination of the employees of the hospital members and other lives contributed by employers. The VHAN network comprises a large portion of the referral network for VUMC in Tennessee and is a tremendous opportunity for statewide brand development and philanthropic activity.
