Personal Interests:

Rocio Huet has over thirty years of clinical experience in medical practice as well as teaching. She was first exposed to wholistic medicine as a member of the American Medical Student Association, for which she served as the national president 1980-1981. After many years of practice in internal medicine, she decided to dedicate her practice to a team-based approach partnering with patients to help each person find his or her path to optimal health in all realms: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual so each of us can find wholeness. She employs proven complementary modalities that can aid in healing. Through Dr. Huet’s vision of bringing the integrative medicine approach to her community and region, the University Internal Medicine and Integrative Health practice was started and the University of Tennessee Medical Center integrative medicine program has developed and continues to grow. She is presently the Director of Integrative Medicine at UTMC and is also a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine. She is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, a diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Medicine, the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine and the American Board of Medical Acupuncture. She is a member of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine and the Academy of Medical Acupuncture. She is a graduate of the 2018 Leadership Knoxville class and a graduate of the third annual Duke Leadership Program in Integrative Healthcare. She is presently on the board of Bridge Refugee Services, Inc., an advisor to the Dorothy Mitchell-Kincaid Beloved Community Outreach Foundation, a member of the Leadership Knoxville Curriculum Committee and a Leadership Knoxville Scholars Mentor. Dr. Huet earned her B.A. in Molecular Biology from the University of Kansas, her M.D. from the University of Michigan, her internship in internal medicine at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and her residency in internal medicine at the University of Tennesee-Knoxville. She is fluent in Spanish and English with both parents who emigrated from Mexico City to the US. She hikes in the mountains as often as possible and has a daily meditation practice to help her stay balanced. She reads books of all topics, especially related to neuroscience and psychology. She loves travel and spending time with her husband, grown children and family.
