International Medical Graduate Applicants to Urology

Thank you for your interest in our program. We consider international medical students and graduates applying to our program who meet our selection criteria and who have passed USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 on first attempt before they would being training -- with competitive USMLE Step 2 scores.

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

The Tennessee 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)
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 this accrediting authority will be deemed to meet the criteria required in Tennessee.
