Physician's Medical Education and Research Foundation
In the mid-1960s, Knoxville area physicians joined as a group to support medical education and research in the community.
This group of physicians chartered the Physicians’ Medical Education and Research Foundation (PMERF). They believed that the future of health care in this region depended on the local education of aspiring healthcare providers, local research (basic science, translational and clinical) and the local control of funds raised to meet these aims.
