Selma Family Medicine
Being community based, we offer a large patient load from which the graduate physician gains wide experience in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases. The resident is instructed clinically by Family Medicine Physicians and specialists, and didactically by local physicians and professors of medicine from the School of Medicine at UAB.
Welcome to the UAB Selma Family Medicine Residency Program
Selma has become the referral center for the seven surrounding counties due to the wide range of medical services offered by the city. Drawing points include the excellent emergency rooms, cardiology, surgery, ENT, and ophthalmology facilities.
"As the only School of Medicine branch located in a rural setting, Selma offers a unique perspective and set of experiences for residents. We train them to be community physicians, managing patients from the nursery to the end of life." - Monica Newton, D.O., assistant professor
