Candidate Interview Information

Sample Agenda

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.
