Our Program

Welcome to Crestwood Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program. Our program is an ACGME-accredited (ACGME ID: 1400100001) residency program based in Huntsville, Alabama.

Our residency program is accepting applications for our first class to start on July 1, 2023. Each class is comprised of 12 residents for a total of 36 residents at full complement.

Our mission is to train outstanding, well-rounded internists who will improve the health of our patients and our community. We are searching for residents to join our staff and faculty in the creation of an atmosphere that promotes wellness for our physicians, patient care team members and our patients. Our program integrates the diverse backgrounds and life experiences of our staff and faculty to meet the needs of our patients and colleagues. We strive to serve our patients with professionalism and humility. We aspire to lead care delivery with service in mind, always accountable to others while being respectful of our teammates, patients and community.

Our program aims to prepare our residents to be ready for real world practice in the community of their choice. We aspire to provide a well-rounded education that enables each resident to pursue any career path they choose. Our program will prepare our residents to:

  • Practice comprehensive internal medicine, with an emphasis on developing excellent clinical skills and providing patient-centered, culturally-aware, high-value care
  • Competitively pursue subspecialty training or to expertly practice primary care medicine or hospital medicine, as they desire
  • Understand the foundation of conducting clinical/patient safety/quality improvement research
  • Participate and lead quality initiatives that promote optimal systems-based care
  • Engage in life-long learning and teaching
  • Demonstrate compassion for patients in everyday care, respect toward other members of the healthcare team and empathy for the community, with focus on the underserved
  • Collaborate with and competently lead an interdisciplinary team
  • Apply public health principles and utilize community resources to manage the health of populations as well as a personal panel of patients
  • Practice self-care with attention to one’s own physical and mental wellness

Our residency program offers residents the opportunity to join energetic hospital and program leadership jointly committed to resident education and well-being. We are excited to offer the opportunity for our future residents to join us in leaving an indelible mark on the program for future classes and future physicians at Crestwood Medical Center.
