Letter from Family Medicine Recruiting Chiefs
As this year’s Recruiting Chiefs, please let us be the first to extend a thank you for your consideration of our exceptional residency program.
As residents in our second year, we have found this program to be very strong in multiple aspects. The teaching and educational experience offered by our academic medical center in a community setting is unparalleled. While on various rotations, we benefit from one-on-one interaction with attendings that are always eager to teach and answer questions. The knowledge of our faculty is as broad as their professional interests. They are very approachable and care about the residents not only from an educational standpoint but on a personal level as well. Our brand new clinic facility focuses on patient centered care providing a full spectrum of primary care services to a diverse patient population. Our curriculum is well designed and allows for individualization according to each resident’s professional interest. Whether you are interested in rural medicine, sports medicine, emergency medicine, becoming a hospitalist, or any other aspect of family medicine, you will have ample elective time to pursue your specific interests.
Our residents come from all over the country and various walks of life. There is even distribution of married and single residents and the camaraderie is exceptional. We spend time together outside of the workplace, doing anything from going out to dinner, white water rafting to participating in a community softball league. Interacting as a group of residents feels less like work and more like a second family.
So why choose Knoxville? Knoxville is the perfect moderately sized city located in beautiful East Tennessee. There are numerous activities to enjoy year round. Go for a hike in the nearby Smoky Mountains or spend the day on one of the several area lakes. For a night out, head downtown to Market Square or the Old City to enjoy local restaurants, live music, and cultural events. Of course, Saturdays in the fall are spent cheering on the UT VOLS in Neyland Stadium. Hope you like Orange! Whether you enjoy the outdoors, shopping, sports, nightlife, or theatre and arts, Knoxville has what you are looking for!
We appreciate your interest in the program and hope that you will look to us as the place you will call home for the next three years! Enjoy the rest of the interview season and we hope to see you soon in Knoxville!
