Ben Bailey (PGY-2)
Hometown: Lawrenceburg, TN
Undergraduate: Lipscomb College
Medical School: University of Kentucky
Born and raised in a small town in Middle Tennessee, Ben moved to Nashville for college at Lipscomb where he studied molecular biology while working part-time as a laboratory assistant and tutor. After transitioning to medical school, he began to develop an interest in psychiatric illness, specifically in regards to the impact of mental health on comorbid illnesses and overall quality of life. He was attracted to the Med/Psych program at Tulane due to the approachability of the residents and staff, the service-centered culture, and its notable respect for residents maintaining an appropriate work-life balance. After residency, Ben hopes to split his workload between hospitalist medicine and consult-liaison psychiatry. In his spare time he enjoys reading, jogging, video games, and discovering new local eateries.
