David McRay, MD
I am a Tennessean, although I was born in Arkansas. I attended high school in Murfreesboro, where I met and married my wife, Joan, and then attended Vanderbilt University for undergrad and Northwestern for medical school. After my residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Texas, I spent 19 years practicing small-town family medicine in the Appalachian mountains of East Tennessee, working for a federally-qualified health center. I then returned to my residency program in Fort Worth and helped build and lead the maternal-child health fellowship there for six years. I am delighted to be back home now, helping to launch this new program at Saint Thomas Rutherford. My special interests are women’s health (including advanced obstetrics), ultrasound, ethics, and global health (primarily in the Middle East). I have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and a daughter, and we cherish traveling together, sharing good music and food, telling stories, and exploring opportunities to be near those who are experiencing poverty and injustice.
