On July 1, Vanderbilt Executive Health Physicals added a new doctor to its practice: Ed Odom, MD.
Dr. Odom is an assistant professor of clinical medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine and Public Health at Vanderbilt Health. He attended medical school at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville, FL, and completed his residency at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO. He served at Sarasota, FL, Memorial Hospital from 1999 to 2009, and has been at Vanderbilt Health since 2009.
Dr. Odom has led various Vanderbilt Health initiatives related to improving coding and documentation, which have enhanced patient safety and care delivery.
As a bonus, by joining the Executive Health Physicals team led by Medical Director Sapna Kripalani, MD, Dr. Odom has enabled the clinic to increases its Friday appointment availability.
