University of Tennessee College of Medicine at Nashville/Murfreesboro

History

This community-based program offers the unique experience of being based at a high volume, efficient community hospital, while also having the advantages of the academic resources of a major university medical school. Residents play a hands-on role in managing their patients and have the opportunity to perform numerous resuscitations and procedures.

As part of a thriving, private group, the emergency medicine faculty can help teach you the “real world” of emergency medicine. Explore these pages and read the message from our director to see all of the benefits of this unique Emergency Medicine program!
