TNAFP was granted its original charter as the Tennessee Academy of General Practice on April 10, 1948, by the American Academy of General Practice, which is now the American Academy of Family Physicians. TNAFP commemorates 75 years of supporting and advocating for our members and their patients.

Thank you to all the physician members, residents, medical students, partners and other supporters who have engaged in the Academy to advance high-quality, patient-centered family medicine in Tennessee. We celebrate our history and renew our vision to invigorate and empower family physicians for another 75 years and beyond.
