Joseph Hurston, M.D.

First Year Resident

I am from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and grew up visiting the Smoky Mountains with my family.   I have always loved the outdoors and when it came time to choose where I would do my residency I chose Johnson City because it provided the outdoor setting that I have grown to love. I was also looking for a positive environment residency program that would turn me into a well-trained competent general surgeon, ready to begin a successful career or make me competitive for a fellowship program. Ten years from now I hope to impact people's lives in a positive way through the avenue of surgery, be it in this country or a foreign land.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, Lauren, playing sports, and following the Ole Miss Rebels Football team.
