When students come to Huntsville to begin their clinical training, they are directly supported by the Huntsville Office of Medical Student Affairs. This office oversees scheduling of courses and collection of grades for each clerkship or course offered in Huntsville. As well, this office coordinates a weekly Dean's Conference featuring various speakers on clinical subjects, topics related to career choices, and professional development issues. Students receive both academic and career counseling on the Huntsville campus throughout the 3rd and 4th year.

Huntsville graduates have historically been very successful in their residency placements with most graduates placing in one of their top three residency choices. A historical record of PGY-1 Placements for Huntsville students is kept to document the success of students entering all areas of medical practice.
