Welcome!

Class of 2015 Match List

 

In the Office of Medical Student Affairs, it is our mission to ensure the success of all medical students as they progress through their training. Medical student success is measured first and foremost in the classroom and clinics where students spend the majority of their time in the learning environment. Through our advising program within the Colleges, led by Dr. Amy Fleming, Associate Dean for Medical Student Affairs, as well as the Student Assistance Program, led by Dr. Cathy Pettepher, Assistant Dean for Assessment, we provide students with the tools they will need to thrive in Vanderbilt's rigorous curriculum. We also oversee the student-led Vanderbilt Careers in Medicine Program, which facilitates exploration and selection of specialties and prepares students to be highly competitive in the Match. Additionally, we attentively work with student leaders of the Student Wellness Program, a nationally-recognized organization that is designed to promote medical student well-being. We remain available to the entire student body should they ever need our assistance with any of the many wonderful projects that take place within the School of Medicine or the Nashville community.

If a student has questions or concerns related to personal, career, or academic issues, we welcome him/her to visit us at any time by dropping by or by making an appointment with the assistance of Tressa Dillingham who can be reached at (615) 936-8555.

Thank you,
