Emily Miller

College of Medicine Student Vice President

Emily is a third year medical student at UTHSC. She feels that academic degrees hold little significance when they are not coupled with creative, compassionate, and inquisitive care; although this can be hard to incorporate amidst the current challenges of healthcare, it’s the only way providers can honor the whole humanity of those they serve and of themselves. She recommends the books God’s Hotel by Dr. Victoria Sweet and Waking Up In America by Dr. Pedro Jose Greer Jr. for those who want to explore examples of holistic care.
