About the Graduate School of Medicine

About the Graduate School of Medicine

We are proud to be a part of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center offering exceptional programs in medicine, dentistry, and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our educational opportunities are unique in several ways, one of which is our Medical Explorations Program for high school students who express an interest in medicine. Another is our integrated relationship with the University of Tennessee-Knoxville campus providing scholarship opportunities for students, residents, and faculty. Many of our faculty hold joint appointments in other departments.

Collaboration with our College of Medicine campuses in Memphis and Chattanooga allows our medical students to experience different clinical settings and our faculty increased research opportunities. Our partnership with the College of Veterinary Medicine goes well beyond the clinical realm to offer both masters and doctoral degrees for graduate students in Comparative and Experimental Medicine. Similarly, our interaction with the College of Pharmacy on this campus provides an abundance of opportunities for collective education and research.

We are especially fortunate to work with our clinical partner, University Health System, Incorporated to create the University of Tennessee Medical Center Campus providing medical care found only in an academic medical center.

The uniqueness of our campus is exhibited by our graduates who go onto to practice throughout the United States bringing with them the expertise for excellent patient care and the collegiality of a caring provider.

We have a diverse array of academic departments with more than 400 full-time and volunteer teaching physicians, dentists, and researchers. More than 200 residents and fellows currently train in 15 ACGME-accredited specialty and subspecialty programs, and 16 residents train in CODA-accredited general dentistry and AAOMS accredited oral and maxillofacial surgery programs.
