Graduate Medical Education
East Tennessee State University's Quillen College of Medicine's Graduate Medical Education residency and fellowship programs participate in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS), developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges. All programs accept only ERAS applications that are electronically transmitted to our institution.
Please do not send any materials via mail, fax or email. Any documents received outside the ERAS system will not be forwarded to the program.
