Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center committed to reducing cancer death and suffering through:

  • Pioneering research and team science

  • A team approach to innovative cancer treatment

  • Evidence-based prevention, education and community outreach

  • Comprehensive services to meet the unique physical, emotional, psychological and practical needs of cancer survivors after treatment, regardless of age at diagnosis, type of cancer or where they received their oncology care

Located in Nashville, Tennessee, our center lies in the "buckle" of the "cancer belt" – seven contiguous states with the highest death rates from cancer. Our job is not done until those statistics are changed.

Vanderbilt Medical Center is a place where your expertise will be valued, your knowledge expanded and your abilities challenged. It is a place where your diversity — of culture, thinking, learning and leading — is sought and celebrated. It is a place where employees know they are part of something that is bigger than themselves, take exceptional pride in their work and never settle for what was good enough yesterday. Vanderbilt’s mission is to advance health and wellness through preeminent programs in patient care, education, and research.
