The not-for-profit physician group consists of more than 350 doctors serving the greater Memphis, Tennessee area. Specialized practices include emergency medicine, pediatrics, surgery, ophthalmology, and cardiology. The company was founded in 1974 as the Faculty Medical Practice Corporation; one decade later its name was changed to reflect its association with University of Tennessee.
