This is a CRNA program that I'm very interested in. If anyone who has attended has any advice or information on the school/area, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

What would you like to know?

Just how well you enjoyed the school, the way the program was taught, whether or not the clinicals are a good learning environment. Also, is Chattanooga a nice town? Thanks alot.

Like the school. Would recommend it. Clinicals are what you make of them wherever you go. But there is no competition here for cases in regards to residents or PAs.
The PD/AD are VERY supportive.
Nice town. Lots to do...if you happen to find any time during school. Cost of living is quite reasonable.
I don't think it matters what town you're in for school since you'll pretty much be holed-up studying or passing gas. I, myself, prefer not to freeze my ass off if I can avoid it. This is about as north as I would like to be at wintertime...and I'm from waaaaaaayyyy up north originally.

Yeah I was wondering about the clinical sites. With Nashville and Atlanta being so close I didn't know if you did them there or at small towns in Ga, AL and TN.

UTC's main site (90% of your time is here) is a level one peds / adult trauma center. Its a teaching hospital without an anesthesiology program and probably one of the main reasons I chose this school.
I think another main draw to the school is the case load. Not going to name names here, but I have seen some schools with seniors struggling to get the bare minimum number of cases by graduation. That is a disservice in my opinion. I know that Ray and Mike have logged some serious numbers as well...I graduated with over 1250 cases.

Great, I've heard nothing but great things about UTC. It's seemingly my first choice now. Hopefully I'll get in.

At this point, clinical sites are various hospitals in Chattanooga and one in Dalton, GA.
Ditto about the case availability. At the end of one full semester (with 4 left) of clinical, I was much more than half way to my needed numbers.
