Mission Statement

The mission of the UAB Montgomery Internal Medicine Residency Program is to provide superior graduate medical education in internal medicine to individuals seeking to become capable, moral, ethical, and competent physicians while providing quality, cost effective health care. Our purpose is to provide our residents the tools necessary for their future professional and personal success. In an environment of collegiality and mutual respect, residents expand their medical knowledge, attain clinical skills and judgment, and acquire ethical and compassionate patterns of behavior. 

Learning is accomplished primarily at the bedside both in the hospital and in the outpatient clinics, where residents assume responsibility of a diverse population of patients, not only in the disease states encountered but also in their socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Under the guidance of a committed and dedicated faculty, residents gain experience yet also recognize the need for personal reflection and insight to further mature as a critical thinker and problem solver.
