The Nashville Academy of Medicine, established in 1821, is a professional organization that has grown from a dozen physicians to nearly 2,200 since its inception. NAM represents the medical profession in matters of importance to our members and the community they serve. Maintaining the integrity of the medical profession and ensuring that physicians can continue to provide patients with excellent care has been our strength for generations.

The Nashville Academy supports physician health, practice health, and community health. We support doctors with education, peer-to-peer networking, leadership training, business resources and other programs that help them grow personally and professionally.

The Academy’s goals include maintaining high standards of medical practice, professionalism and ethical conduct, and promoting the common interests and unity of physicians in our community. NAM sponsors various programs and activities addressing local needs and contributing to a healthier community.
