  • We accept ONLY J1 visas

We will begin reviewing applications as soon as ERAS opens. Interviews will be granted on a rolling basis. Applicants will be contacted via ERAS asking them to email our coordinator to schedule their interview.

All residents must pass a criminal background check before they are allowed to start work. Residents must pass USMLE Step 3 or COMLEX-USA Level 3 to be eligible for a third-year appointment. Failure to pass the required examination by the beginning of the third year of training will result in non-renewal of the resident’s contract.

Interview Information

We use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and adhere to its policies and guidelines. Our interviews are granted on a rolling basis by invitation only. This year, interviews will be held weekly on Mondays and Fridays from late October through mid-February.

Interview Day - 2020

Recruitment will look different this year! We will be conducting all interviews virtually via Zoom. We are sad that we cannot host you for dinners in Murfreesboro this year but hope to tell you everything you want to know about the area and about our program during the interview process. The interview day is designed to provide you with as much information about our program as possible, while giving us an opportunity to get to know you. You will interview with faculty and residents.
