The Foundation has three distinct pillars of focus:
- Physician Wellbeing via our Thrive initiative
- Public Health
- Empowering the Next Generation of Physician Leaders
Specific projects have included support of the Tennessee Medical Foundation Mental Health Summit, leadership training at AMA and TMA conferences for physicians in all career stages and general operations for Church Health and other charities.The Foundation’s Board of Directors is comprised of Past Presidents of Memphis Medical Society, the Treasurer and the CEO.
Memphis Medical Foundation is embarking on two particularly ambitious projects.
- Online Physician Directory – currently available in a basic form on The Memphis Medical Society website, we seek to expand this project with deeper search functionality, more detailed information on physicians and an online appointment scheduling solution.
- Addressing Physician Burnout – the Foundation is supporting Memphis Medical Society in its participation with other medical societies across the country in addressing the growing problem of physician burnout. The Foundation and Society have targeted Spring 2019 as a target date for launch of this program which will be named Thrive.
