The Colleges of Medicine and Nursing were originally scheduled to have their commencement ceremonies this Friday, but unfortunately they had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited for all of these graduates, and will be celebrating with them virtually! Congratulations, Class of 2020!

  1. COVID-19 Return to Campus TrainingAs the University of Tennessee Health Science Center begins a phased “ramp up” back to campus, it is important for everyone to understand the new rules that must be followed to ensure we are keeping each other as safe as possible. Therefore, all employees and students (but NOT residents) will be REQUIRED to complete COVID-19 training prior to coming back to the UTHSC campus.

You may access your training via Blackboard. After you enter your NetID and password, click on the COVID-19 training under the “My Courses” header at the top right. You will need to watch the training video, and then successfully pass the quiz. This specific training is not required for Residents.

If you have any questions regarding the safety protocol required as we come back to campus, please contact Tim Barton, Chief Safety Officer, at tbarton4@uthsc.edu or 901.448.7374.
