Applying for Fellowship Training
Graduates of residencies in either pediatrics or emergency medicine are considered for entry. Applications will be accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Our program will require the following items from applicants:
- Personal Statement
- Medical School Transcripts*
- Curriculum Vitae
- Letter from your current program director
- Three other letters of recommendation
*The University of Tennessee Affiliated Hospitals require all international medical graduates to have ECFMG certification in order to enter a residency program. If a non-US citizen, you must also have a J-1 Visa. No other visa will be accepted.
To ensure that all residents/fellows meet minimal standards, the Graduate Medical Education Program requires that all residents/fellows entering any graduate medical education program sponsored by the University of Tennessee College of Medicine on or after July 1, 2009 must have passed USMLE Steps 1 and 2 (CK and CS) or equivalent examinations (COMLEX-USA or MCCQE). Successful completion of USMLE Step 3 is required prior to starting the fellowship.
Feel free to contact Leeanna Fox Irwin, Program Coordinator, through email or at 901-287-5625 with any other questions or concerns.
