Joseph Wright

1st-Year Resident

University of Tennessee


I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN. From there, I went to undergrad at Tennessee Tech where I studied chemistry with a focus in biochemistry and fell in love with medicine. After graduating, I worked for a year at Oak Ridge National Lab in radioisotope processing before starting medical school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. My wife and I have really enjoyed Charlottesville and love how dog friendly everything is. My interest is in ophthalmology. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, golfing, and cooking.
