Thank you for visiting our UAB Huntsville Internal Medicine Residency website. This is a wonderful and exciting time to begin a career in internal medicine, particularly in Huntsville. 

Our mission is to provide highly quality, hands on training, experience and education, designed to teach each individual resident the art and skill needed to be a compassionate, devoted, and well-rounded internal medicine physician. We still strive to promote the qualities and concepts of leadership, professionalism, inclusiveness, and diversity while facilitating growth through feedback sessions, self-directed personal assessments and formal evaluations. We remain committed to fostering an individualized training environment for each resident that caters to his or her personal and career interests, allowing a balance clinical autonomy and structured learning, and encourages scholarly activity as well as personal and professional well-being.

We encourage you to learn about us, our facilities, our curriculum, and our city of Huntsville Alabama - the Rocket City.  We are proud of our graduates and medical students, and we look forward to continuing our tradition of excellence in training future Internists.
