Residency Training

Training future neurologists and neurosurgeons has been, and continues to be, a top priority for Semmes Murphey. Our partnership with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) dates back to 1932 when Dr. Semmes became the first Professor of Neurosurgery at the University.
