History of KAM
Since 1853 Knoxville’s physician medical society, the Knoxville Academy of Medicine (KAM), has been serving the needs of East Tennessee’s physicians. The pioneer physicians of Knox County were also farmers, ministers, teachers, business men, and civic leaders. The first and most notable Knox County physician was Dr. Samuel Carrick. Dr. Carrick originally came to this area to become the first pastor of the Lebanon-in-the-Fork Presbyterian Church and later established the First Presbyterian Church in Knoxville. In 1794 he became the President of Blount College (later the University of Tennessee). Read More——–
