Recruitment & Appointment


Our Emergency Medicine Department does not pay for hotels for applicants selected to interview in the Emergency Medicine Residency Program; however, special rates may be available at nearby hotels including the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Chattanooga, Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Chattanooga, and the Holiday Inn Downtown (all on Chestnut Street) if you mention you are interviewing with the UT College of Medicine and Erlanger.

Medical schools in those countries and accredited by the listed accrediting authority will be deemed to meet the criteria required in Tennessee:
