Note: The Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners requires that applicants for license in Tennessee must be graduates either from LCME or AOA accredited schools or from international schools whose admission criteria are comparable to LCME medical schools. The UT College of Medicine Chattanooga and its programs have determined that they will only consider applicants for student rotations or residency/fellowship applications who are from schools who meet these same criteria so they would be eligible for medical license in Tennessee after completing residency. If your school does not meet these requirements, we will not consider your application. Currently four offshore schools have been identified which meet the equivalent admission requirements: American University of the Caribbean, SABA, Ross University, and St. George's University.
