Here at the University of Tennessee, we not only offer great educational and clinical training but we also value the relationships that we have with one another. Not just amongst the residents themselves, but also the administrative staff and attending physicians. In addition to promoting our paramount mission which is excellent patient care, we strive as a department to create a welcoming and collegial environment for all trainees whom we encounter. If you decide that the University of Tennessee is the right place for you, know that in addition to superb training as an anesthesiologist you will leave with relationships that will last a lifetime.
