Dr. Eli Zimmerman, who is originally from Lexington, Kentucky went to Washington University in St. Louis as an undergraduate, and then attended Vanderbilt for medical school, where he was a Robinson Raven since the advisory colleges began in 2007, even serving as an SAA in his fourth year. He graduated from Vanderbilt in 2010 and stayed for his internship in internal medicine prior to leaving for Mass General and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals in Boston for neurology residency, including a year as chief resident, as well as a vascular neurology fellowship. He returned to Vanderbilt in July 2015 to join the neurology faculty. He serves as the director of Brain, Behavior, and Movement, co-directs the neurology clerkship and two neurology ACEs, and is the Vascular Neurology fellowship director. He was honored to receive the residents’ teaching award for the most outstanding teaching attending in his first year on faculty. He is thrilled to be a Robinson FAA. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé, cuddling with his cavapoo, Louis, baking, eating, and spending time with friends and family.
