University Anesthesiologists (UA) has a significant tenure with The University of Tennessee Medical Center (UTMC) and the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine (UTGSM), dating back over 40 years.  Since 1979, UA has provided the physician leadership for The University of Tennessee Medical Center Department of Anesthesiology. The anesthesia group, now over 30 board-certified anesthesiologists, provides perioperative, critical care and pain management services through faculty physicians who have fellowship training in every subspecialty of anesthesiology. As a branch campus of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, the UTGSM was established at the opening of UT Medical Center in 1956. The core anesthesiology residency has been continuously accredited since 1957. A perioperative medicine fellowship was established in 2016 in collaboration with the renowned UTK Haslam School of Business, and an application for a pain management fellowship has been submitted to the ACGME, which will be reviewed this fall.

UT Medical Center is the only academic medical center in the Knoxville area, with a referral base including Eastern Tennessee, Southeast Kentucky and Western North Carolina. As a Magnet designated hospital, UTMC has a growing regional and national reputation. UTMC serves as the Level 1 Trauma Center for the Knoxville area, as well as the region’s Level III NICU. Over 50,000 anesthetics are provided each year for patients who are served by all seven of the institution’s Centers of Excellence. As the academic component of UTMC, the UT Graduate School of Medicine includes 400 faculty physicians and researchers, and 225 residents and fellows who train in 15 ACGME-accredited specialty and subspecialty programs.

Our practice is nestled near the Smoky Mountains, and East Tennessee’s many lakes, rivers, and parks provide the perfect setting for outdoor activities.  The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Big South Fork recreation area are within an hour’s drive, and the Tennessee River is in clear view from the UT Medical Center campus.  In addition to having easy access to rural peaceful settings, Knoxville has a robust fine arts community along with an active music scene.  Knoxville has a passionate sports crowd, with UTK providing nationally recognized football, basketball, and baseball programs.  A minor league baseball team, the Smokies (a Cubs affiliate), is a short drive from downtown Knoxville.  

Knoxville is the third largest city in Tennessee and is home to the University of Tennessee, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Aluminum Company of America, Tennessee Valley Authority, and HGTV. Knoxville has a progressive science and technology corridor and is emerging as a national leader in many areas of technology. There is no state income tax in the State of Tennessee, and Knoxville has a thriving economy, as well as excellent public and private school systems. Knoxville is a day’s drive from two-thirds of the population of the U.S, and is on an international waterway. Furthermore, McGhee Tyson airport is a 10-minute drive from the medical center campus.

Knoxville consistently ranks as one of the U.S. top cities to live in - it truly has a small town feel with big city amenities.
