    What departments or specialties at Vanderbilt are well-known as being excellent or considered very good across the country?
    Ive heard that the Emergency Medicine program is very good, is this true?

    One place to look to get an idea is to check out the US News Hospital Rankings and to see if Vanderbuilt or its affiliated hospitals rank highly in any one of the specialties respresented in that survey.

    http://www.usnews.com/usnews/nycu/health/hosptl/tophosp.htm

    From the listings, it looks like Vanderbuilt is -
    #27 in Cancer (oncology)
    #23 in Heart (cardiology)
    #12 in Hormonal disorders (endocrine)
    #35 in Digestive disorders (gastroenterology)
    #20 in Gynecology (OB/GYN)
    #9 in Kidney disease (Renal)
    #32 in Neurology
    #19 in Orthopedics
    #11 in Ear, nose, & throat (ENT)
    #15 in Respiratory disorders (Pulmonary)
    #18 in Urology

    EM doc I shadowed said that Vandy's EM program is top-notch. Also, a surgeon I shadowed said that the surgery department is, in his words, "stellar". Take it for what it's worth.
