Internal Medicine Residency Program

The University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine (UTGSM) Internal Medicine Residency program is comprised of an outstanding team of resident physicians, faculty, and staff with the charge to deliver world class patient care, advance medical knowledge through research and inquiry, and improve the quality of healthcare. The program size of 36 residents and low resident to faculty ratio provides an environment where residents can form longitudinal learning relationships with dedicated general medicine and subspecialty faculty. This program has been described as "small but intense" by residents and students alike, reflecting well the department's emphasis on rigorous training combined with personal attention from the faculty.

The University of Tennessee Medical Center, the nationally ranked tertiary care medical center where most training occurs, maintains a deep commitment to medical education. Since 1956 this facility has trained thousands of medical students and resident physicians in the ever-growing residency and fellowship programs. Patients have access to a broad array of specialty and technology driven care, built upon a base of an outstanding primary care network. The Department of Medicine has fellowship programs in cardiovascular disease, interventional cardiology, pulmonary disease/critical care medicine and hematology/oncology with a residency class size of 12 Categorical Medicine residents per year in addition to a Transitional Program Residency. The direct patient care provided by our department and the physicians who trained here and practice in the region are critical to the life of the East Tennessee community. The majority of UTGSM graduates choose to make the Knoxville area and East Tennessee their home.
