USA Family Medicine Center

This is home base, and the focus for resident training. Located in midtown Mobile, convenient to the downtown entertainment district, shopping malls, and historic homes. Our patients come from all walks of life, and on a given day a resident's panel might include anyone from a newborn with breastfeeding problems to a college professor with chest pain. It is equipped with most equipment needed to diagnose and treat common medical conditions as well as care for patients with chronic conditions and in need of preventive services. Laboratory and x-ray services are located within the Center, right down the hall. Residents spend an orientation month here as well as ½ day per week throughout their first year, two sessions a week in their second year, and up to five sessions a week here in their  third year.
