Patient centered education, especially at the bedside, under the guidance of mentors and positive role models allow our residents to mature in a caring and nurturing environment of collegiality and mutual respect. We are renowned for close working relationships between students and professors. This philosophy is the basis of the Huntsville Internal Medicine Residency Program. The faculty, staff, and residents are part of a family, each bringing unique attributes that diversify and enrich the Program. Individual attention is provided and clinical responsibilities are tailored to the medical maturity of the resident during each stage of his or her training. We nurture the intellectual curiosity of trainees who are strongly encouraged and supported by the leadership of the Residency Program and the Department of Medicine to participate in scholarly and academic activities.
