Admitted Students

In the spring, we host multiple events, both on-campus, in-person, and virtual for students admitted to the program. Events include campus tours, alumni talks, meetings with current students, and much more.


Admitted students get the opportunity to meet other admitted students and learn more about the program through our Virtual Meet-and-Greets. You are welcome to attend both sessions if available. 

Register for the meet-and-greets:

Students will also have the opportunity to tour campus and learn more about the opportunities available to them at Vanderbilt University and the Department of Medicine, Health, and Society.

If you are unable to visit on March 19 but would like to schedule an individual visit, please contact us at and we can arrange a meeting.
