Our Program

Welcome to Crestwood Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program. Our program is an ACGME-accredited (ACGME ID: 1200100730) 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 eight residents for a total of 24 residents at full complement.

Our mission is to develop an innovative and expansive training experience for the residents, preparing them for sustained excellence and success as they face the challenges of the future. The program strives to provide a foundation which prepares our future residents for careers as physicians and leaders in primary care, with special emphasis on developing effective leaders of multidisciplinary primary care teams responsive to the needs of diverse patient populations.

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 hope our well-rounded education enables each resident to pursue any career path they choose. Our program will prepare our residents to:

  • Practice comprehensive family medicine, with an emphasis on developing excellent clinical skills and providing patient-centered, culturally-aware, high-value care
  • Collaborate with and competently lead an interdisciplinary team
  • Practice self-care with attention to one’s own physical and mental wellness
  • Engage in life-long learning and teaching
  • Apply public health principles and utilize community resources to manage the health of populations as well as a personal panel of patients
  • 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
  • Participate and lead quality initiatives that promote optimal systems-based care

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.
