Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology at UT Knoxville. We are happy that you are considering our program. We take great pride in the excellent clinical training we receive, the research and educational opportunities offered, and the warm, collegial environment amongst our residents, the mid-level providers and students, and our attending anesthesiologists. Regarding our clinical experience, we have a unique opportunity in the fact that we do fellow-level cases and procedures as residents since we do not currently have any clinical fellows in our department. Our program is uniquely situated in an academic medical center with private practice physicians, giving us exposure to and preparation for the private practice world, all the while offering the educational and research experiences provided in an academic medical center. Life in Knoxville isn’t bad, either, with a low cost of living, no state income tax, and no wait at the airport (just ten minutes from the hospital!). Our work-life balance in residency is unparalleled, making it possible to enjoy our families, the Great Smoky Mountains--just one hour away-- and the beautiful rolling foothills of East Tennessee.
