Dr. Sandra Moutsios grew up in Stow, Ohio and then moved with her family to south Florida and attended high school in West Palm Beach. She went to Duke University for bio-medical engineering, and then back to the University of Florida for medical school. She came to Nashville in 1993 to start her residency in combined internal medicine and pediatrics (med-peds) at Vanderbilt. She was a chief resident in pediatrics in 1997-98, and then joined the faculty as the first med-peds residency program director.
She is still the program director for the med-peds program and enjoys working with the med-peds residents in supporting their professional development, even as she has expanded her academic roles to include more teaching with medical students. Starting July 2011, she became one of the advisory college directors for Robinson College. She was excited to be a part of the new colloquium for the first year students through that role, and to be a part of the evolving Curriculum 2.0 for all students. Also in 2011, she assumed the role of Master Clinical Teacher and enjoys being involved with the clinical students through the medicine clerkship in weekly preceptor small groups and as an MCT.
Outside of medicine, she enjoys spending time with her husband and her three sons. She enjoys hunting for fossils, crawfish, arrowheads, geodes, crystals and anything else her boys want to search for in their creek.
