A native of Columbia, TN, Dr. Peachey has remained in the Middle Tennessee area throughout his education and training. In 2002, he graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in biology and chemistry. He then moved to Nashville to attend the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine before beginning his combined residency training in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Vanderbilt. It was during this time that he developed the passion for medical education and the clinical practice of palliative medicine that would eventually guide his career path. Following residency, Dr. Peachey served as Chief Resident of Pediatrics for Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital before completing a fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine and, in 2012, joining the faculty of Vanderbilt University Medical Center as an assistant professor of Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Palliative Medicine. Dr. Peachey is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Palliative Medicine.
