International Medical Graduates:
Thank you for your interest in our program. We accept international medical graduates into our program and are looking for select individuals who have recent US clinical experience and above average USMLE scores. Our institution sponsors J-1 visas.
*The Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners determined that it will recognize off shore international medical schools whose admission requirements are equivalent to US allopathic medical schools. Graduates from off shore international medical schools whose admission requirements are not equivalent to US allopathic medical schools will not automatically be eligible for license, unless they have been licensed in another state. The UT College of Medicine Chattanooga and its programs have determined that they will only consider offshore international applicants for student rotations or residency/fellowship application whose shools meet these same requirements -- 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, NOVA, Ross University, and St. George's University.
