Note: The Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners requires that applicants for licensure in Tennessee must be graduates from either LCME or AOA accredited schools or from international schools whose admissions meet or exceed those of medical schools accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. The UTHSC College of Medicine Chattanooga and its programs have determined they will only consider applicants for student rotations or residency/fellowship applications who are from schools that meet these same criteria so they would be eligible for medical licensing in Tennessee after completing residency. 

The Board of Medical Examiners adopts the following list of accreditation bodies:

  • Medical Board of California list of approved medical schools
  • Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP)
  • Accreditation Commission of Colleges of Medicine (ACCM)
  • In addition, the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) provides a list of countries whose designated accreditation process or designated organization used for their accreditation has comparable standards used to evaluate medical schools in the United States by the LCME. Medical schools in those countries and accredited by the listed accrediting authority will be deemed to meet the criteria required in Tennessee.
