Required third-year clerkships are available at the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine (UTGSM). Students may complete their Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Surgery, OB/GYN, Psychiatry and Neurology rotations in Knoxville. Much of the required third-year LCP program is also offered at UTGSM. Registration for Knoxville clerkships is included as part of the overall scheduling process at UT College of Medicine, Memphis. UTGSM clerkships are coded with the number 2 (for example, the course number to register for OB/GYN in Knoxville is OBG2-3001/F).
While at the UTGSM, students receive complimentary meals (while on call), pagers, and parking. Students are also eligible for a VolCard with which they can access all facilities and programs of the main campus of the University of Tennessee, including athletic events. As soon as third-year registration is complete, students should contact Undergraduate Medical Education in Knoxville to discuss housing options.

No longer is lecture the only mode of transferring knowledge. At the UT Center for Advanced Medical Simulation, residents, fellows, and medical students use simulation to follow curricula and learning objectives that meet learning styles and satisfy goals of specialties and needs of patients. Specific skills are taught and assessed by faculty physicians from the UT Graduate School of Medicine, who are, themselves, lifelong learners.
In addition to advanced, virtual reality technology, the medical simulation center offers low- and mid-fidelity trainers that refine essential skills used regularly by medical professionals, including inserting catheters, accessing veins, administering injections, and using defibrillators. Today's doctors exercise low-fidelity simulation training to re-enact proper techniques for inserting central venous lines, which will minimize the chance of central line associated blood stream infections, and suturing to ensure proper healing of wounds. The simulation center plays an important role in making the University of Tennessee Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine leaders in healing and education.
"I cannot say enough about my third and fourth year experiences at UT Medical Center in Knoxville. The faculty are amazing - they have a genuine interest in teaching, and in students' success in medical school and beyond. The attendings, residents, nurses, and administrators all create an environment where students feel welcome and supported, which really impacts learning. I am so happy I chose to do rotations in Knoxville, and would highly recommend rotating there to all UTHSC students."
