Vanderbilt Medical Center (VMC)
The Vanderbilt Medical Center (VMC) includes the Vanderbilt University Hospital (VUH) and the Vanderbilt Clinic.
The Vanderbilt University Hospital is the centerpiece of the Medical Center and the locus of interface between the Department of Psychiatry and the broader community. The Hospital houses the Vanderbilt Consultation-Liaison / Emergency Services and the Psychiatric Transition Unit (PTU), a 24-hour service for the evaluation of patients in a psychiatric emergency.
In the Vanderbilt University Hospital, medical students and resident physicians learn how mental illness impacts the community and how medical and psychiatric problems often present together.
