In the late 1970s, family practice physicians were rare in rural West Tennessee, and many communities didn’t have easy access to medical care. In 1979, Jackson-Madison County General Hospital partnered with the University of Tennessee Medical School in Memphis to create a training facility for future Family Medicine physicians: the University of Tennessee Family Medicine Residency Program, here in Jackson, TN. As the epicenter of West Tennessee, Jackson was the optimum location to train new physicians. The hope was that many of those physicians would stay to practice in West Tennessee.
Over the years, hundreds of physicians have been trained in Family Medicine at UT Family Medicine Center, fifty percent choosing to remain and practice in West Tennessee. Today, the UT Family Medicine Center has 26 exam rooms, x-ray facilities, procedure suites and laboratories.
We have 34 physicians, who provide care in both the clinic as well as at Jackson-Madison County General hospital.
All of our faculty physicians are board certified and are Assistant Professors or Associate Professors with the University of Tennessee educational system.
