    Does anybody know what the general reputation of Memphis is to residency programs? And what is the deal with them not letting themselves be ranked by usnews, is this important?

    I'd say Memphis is a fine school, although I'd much rather go RURAL with ETSU. Suffer through tough classwork in rural & scenic Johnson City, TN! :hardy:

    68% or residency directors say that UT Mem students are "better" or "much better" than their residents from other schools, likely because UT students generally have opportunity to do far more than other students during their rotations.

    I just looked for the link on the UT website where I saw this a few weeks ago but couldn't find it just now.
