Chattanooga “The Scenic City”


Chattanooga, the 4th largest city in the state, a top 25 place to visit in 2018, is located in Southeast Tennessee near the border of Georgia. The city has received national recognition for the renaissance of its beautiful downtown and redevelopment of its riverfront. Most striking, though, is the city’s civic life. A phrase that comes up constantly is “The Chattanooga Way”: a reference to a cooperative get-it-done attitude.

With its scenic beauty, stable population and economy, civic vitality and cross-sector partnerships, fiscal integrity, and strategic location, Chattanooga enters the 21st century as one of the most progressive and livable mid-size cities in the US. Attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Civil War battlefield sites, the Hunter Art Museum, and the Appalachian Trail bring thousands of people to the area, as do the many creative multicultural events throughout the year.

A Teaching Hospital


An approved teaching hospital since 1915, Erlanger became affiliated with the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in 1974. Today, Erlanger serves as the main campus for the University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga (UTCOMC), one of three campuses across the state that are affiliated with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
