The University of Tennessee - Nashville Family Medicine Residency Program received its initial accreditation in January 2014. The primary site for the program is Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro. Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital was estabilished in 1927, and in 2010 moved into a new, $268 million facility that is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and 286 all-private patient rooms. The program's clinic is a newly renovated 16,000 square foot facility that is in the heart of the community that we serve.
The University of Tennessee - Nashville Family Medicine Residency Program is a community-based, university-affiliated training program. We are committed to preparing physicians to provide full-spectrum family medicine to the residents of the communities they serve, with a special focus on the needs of the underserved. We strive to create a culture that nurtures residents to provide comprehensive, high-quality medical care and compassionate service for their patients during training and throughout their careers, while cultivating integrity, professionalism, and lifelong learning. This, coupled with the benefits of living near a major metropolitan area, makes our program a great place for residents to work, live, and grow as family medicine physicians.
