Our Mission

The mission of the Johnson City Division of General Internal Medicine is to provide state of the art primary care to the citizens of our region and to train medical students and resident physicians to become excellent compassionate physicians. All of our physicians are available to see new patients as well as providing long-term continuity of care to our established patient population. Our physicians are all certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and hold faculty appointments in the Department of Internal Medicine at East Tennessee State University Quillen College of Medicine.

Several of the faculty hold key leadership positions within the department including an Associate Program Director (Dr. Guha) for the Internal Medicine Residency and a Co-clerkship director ( Dr. Macmillan) for the Internal Medicine third year student rotation. The Johnson City clinical site is one of the three major clerkship teaching sites within the department. Growth plans for our division include emphasis on scholarship in practice-related areas and recruitment of additional faculty. Recruitment is currently underway for a traditional track general internist as well as for an imbedded hospitalist.

All physicians maintain active hospital privileges at Johnson City Medical Center and provide care for the group's hospitalized patients. Additionally, a faculty physician is on call 24/7 for emergencies. The group's primary charge is thus twofold: to provide comprehensive primary care to patients beginning at age 18 and, while doing so, to accomplish effective teaching for resident physicians and students in both the outpatient and inpatient sectors.
