All applicants should submit through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS):
APPLICATION DEADLINE - DECEMBER 15
After the applicant has submitted this information through ERAS, the completed application will be reviewed by the Pre-Selection Committee. Interviews for invited applicants will take place October-January.
The interview experience at the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine begins the evening prior to the interview day with dinner at a local restaurant with the current residents and their spouses. Plan on meeting the residents at 6:30 p.m. in the main lobby of the University of Tennessee Medical Center where transportation will be provided to the restaurant. This is a casual dinner so relax, enjoy, and begin learning more about the people involved with this program.
A typical interview day begins at 7:15 a.m. with introduction and program overview by one of the residents. This is followed by a welcome from the Chairman, Bruce Ramshaw, MD, Program Director, Brian J. Daley, MD, and Associate Program Director, James M. Lewis, MD. Interviews begin at 8:00 a.m. with each candidate interviewing with faculty members, fourth year residents, the Associate Program Director, the Program Director, and the Chairman. A tour of the facility and lunch with the current residents concludes the interview day at approximately 1:30 p.m., which gives prospective residents plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful city of Knoxville.

Simulation is the imitation of real-life experience including the use of task and virtual reality trainers, as well as standardized patients to refine technical and clinical skills of healthcare professionals. At the UT Center for Advanced Medical Simulation, the goal is continual improvement in quality of patient care and safety through education, practice, and assessment. Simulation can replicate almost any diagnostic or therapeutic situation, from simple IV insertions using low-fidelity task technology to complicated surgeries using high-fidelity, computerized manikins or virtual reality modules.
