Membership Information

The Vanderbilt University Hospital Patient and Family Advisory Council comprises 12 to 15 patients and family members who have received care at our hospital. The Council includes people with diverse backgrounds in an effort to fully represent the large variety of healthcare issues, diagnoses and cultures of our patients.

Can I serve as a member?

We encourage patients or family members who receive care at the hospital or outpatient clinics and who are available to meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. to submit an application to the Patient and Family Advisory Council. 

Vanderbilt is looking for participants who are as diverse as the patients we serve.

Unable to commit to a monthly meeting but still would like to participate? You may want to apply to become an electronic advisor (E-Visor). We'll send you an email with information about a particular issue that arises, and you can provide your feedback electronically. Please visit AdviseVanderbilt.
