The University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga and Erlanger orthopedic surgery residents received top scores world-wide on the Orthopaedic In Training Examination. Residents scored within the 99th percentile of all academic orthopedic surgery programs in the United States, and within the 98th percentile of all orthopedic programs world-wide.
 
"The UT Erlanger Orthopaedic Residency program was established in 1974 and has been the leader in orthopedic programs in the region.
UT Erlanger Orthopaedic residents have received consistently excellent scores on the OITE for nine consecutive years," officials said.
 
Dr. Richard Alvarez, orthopedic surgeon and professor and chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, UTCOM, credits the program’s success to the 22 fellowship-trained orthopedic faculty on staff at Erlanger, who provide guidance, training and mentorship opportunities to the residents selected for this program under the leadership of program director Dr. Jeremy Bruce. 
 
“Our Erlanger orthopaedic team is comprised of world-renowned orthopaedists who are experts in the field. We have leading specialists who handle some of the most advanced orthopedic cases in the nation. This allows us to attract the best medical talent in our residents,” said Dr. Alvarez. “Our orthopaedic specialists and residents know they are coming to work to make a difference in someone’s life and enable healing every single day. This is what pushes our team to be the best we can be and motivates us to be better.”
