Letter from the Radiology Chief Residents

Dear Radiology Residency Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in our program at the University of Tennessee Medical Center! As chief residents for the 2020-2021 academic year, we would love to tell you more about our program.

We believe we have one of the strongest, most well-rounded training programs in the country. It offers the rare opportunity to work in an academic medical center without any radiology fellows. This allows residents to read complex studies from day one as well be primary operator on a high volume of radiology/interventional radiology procedures. Our extremely diverse training enables residents the unique opportunity to confidently jump straight into private practice, or consistently obtain the best fellowship positions in the country.

Aside from the robust training, we would argue we have the closest knit group of residents in the country. We have weekly resident outings as well as bi-annual department sponsored resident outings.

Lastly, Knoxville is a great place to live. Our rapidly expanding downtown scene, new restaurants, and microbreweries are very popular. We are also less than an hour away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which provides some of the best hiking and camping in the country.

Thank you for your interest in our program, and we look forward to meeting you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
