Dr. Campbell is a Knoxville native who has dedicated his career to ensuring access to safe, accessible, evidence-based abortion care. He grew up in West Knoxville and graduated from Farragut High School in 2009. He then attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where he studied Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology, and Philosophy in preparation for medical school. He graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2012, and was initiated into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. During his time at UT Knoxville, Dr. Campbell’s father, a past Medical Director of Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health, unexpectedly passed away. Given the death of his father and the scarcity of abortion providers in the South, Dr. Campbell decided to pursue the education and training necessary to return to provide abortion care.
Dr. Campbell attended Quillen College of Medicine at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN. In his first year of medical school, he founded a chapter of the non-profit organization Medical Students for Choice to increase access to medical student education regarding abortion and contraception where he regularly scheduled educational activities throughout his time in medical school. In his third year, he was elected to the Medical Students for Choice Board of Directors that oversees the national and international operations of the organization; he served on the Board for three years. Prior to graduating medical school, Dr. Campbell was awarded the National Abortion Federation Elizabeth Karlin Early Achievement Award which recognizes one medical student annually. He graduated from Quillen College of Medicine in 2017 and was awarded the Ann Tranum Hawkins Award for Excellence in Women’s Health.
Dr. Campbell proceeded to residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Magee-Womens Hospital, a nationally-recognized leader in obstetric and gynecologic services. During his time at Magee, Dr. Campbell trained with leaders in Family Planning to gain the experience necessary to provide safe abortion care. He was awarded the Magee-Womens Hospital Junior Resident Award for Excellence in Family Planning in his intern year, and in his senior year was awarded The Ryan Program Resident Award for Excellence in Family Planning. He also became a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society and was awarded several teaching awards throughout his residency.
After graduating from his residency at Magee in 2021, Dr. Campbell moved back home to Knoxville where he has assumed the role of Medical Director of Knoxville Center for Reproductive Health. He is proud to offer abortion and contraception services, and will continue to work to ensure the people of our region have access to safe and evidence-based services.
