Bonnie Miller MD, MMHC is the Senior Associate Dean for Health Sciences Education at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine (VUSM) and Executive Vice-President for Educational Affairs at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. In these roles, she oversees all programs related to physician education, from the medical school admissions process to continuing professional development. She guided VUSM through several cycles of curriculum innovation, and now consults and collaborates with other schools that seek to transform medical education.

Vanderbilt has completely overhauled their MD curriculum to an integrated format with clinical patient contact starting up front and adding a broader perspective of the overall health care system and interprofessional education as corner stones of their new Vanderbilt Curriculum 2.0 model ( The new curriculum model features integrated sciences, longitudinal assessments, and individualized learner pathways and immersion experiences matched to personalized learning goals. The model is adaptable to all health professions and offers some preview of what will likely emerge as a similar new curriculum model at UM.

Dr. Miller was the Principle Investigator of the American Medical Association’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education Grant, awarded to VUSM in June 2013. She now continues to serve as co-investigator. Despite her administrative responsibilities, Dr. Miller remains engaged in teaching and mentoring. She directs “Foundations of the Profession,” the first course taken by Vanderbilt medical students, which focuses on health equity and the social determinants of health, and serves on University and Medical Center committees related to learning and its intersection with the healthcare delivery system.
