We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and adhere to their guidelines. Our NRMP Program # is 1689110C0. All applications are handled through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We do not accept paper applications. The deadline for applying to the 2011 match for our residency program is November 30, 2011.
A completed application includes:
1. Completed ERAS application
2. Personal Statement
3. Curriculum Vitae
4. Official transcript from your medical school
5. Dean's letter
6. Two letters of recommendation. We prefer that at least one of the letters is a CORD Standard Letter of Recommendation (SLOR).
7. USMLE Step 1 score and, if available, Step 2 score
Once the application is completed, our selection committee will review the application and interviews will be granted to those best qualified. Interviews are by invitation only and are required to be ranked.
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.
