Tennessee Center for Health Workforce Development (TCWD) facilitates opportunities for medical residents in Tennessee to participate in rotations at a variety of rural practice sites across the state. Rotations are available in Community Health Centers, Rural Health Clinics, and private practice settings. Rotations are typically over a 4-week period, but can be adjusted to accommodate the needs of the resident or clinic.


Tennessee medical residents in all primary care disciplines may apply, including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, and psychiatry. Rotations may also may be approved for certain non-primary care specialties where shortages exist in Tennessee.

Out of state residents who hold an unrestricted license to practice medicine in any state may apply for a rural rotation if they meet other requirements for a Single Purpose License in Tennessee.
