If you are considering joining an advisory council, already serve on one of our councils, or are forming a council at your health system, we have detailed more information about how Vanderbilt Health uses advisory councils to further our mission. The four councils at Vanderbilt Health are differing stages of maturity and support each other in improving quality and safety at Vanderbilt Health.
The council’s charter outlines the objectives of the council and commitment of its members who serve Vanderbilt University Hospital and its outpatient facilities.
If you are already a member of the advisory council, our members' only section provides information that will help you in your role as a member, including meeting agendas and minutes. A password is required to access these documents. Please contact your Advisory Council Chair if you have not been provided one.
