    University Physicians

    University Physicians is the multispecialty physician faculty practice plan, which includes many faculty who are among the leaders in their field.

    University Physicians Medical Pavilion is a practice site for many subspecialties of UP. The structure, which is more than 80,000 square feet, adjoins the James D. Hardy Clinical Sciences Building, the home of a number of medical offices.

    UP has recently opened two off-campus locations in the Rankin County town of Flowood - a multispecialty practice at Grants Ferry and an obstetrics-gynecology practice at Mirror Lake.
