USA Children's and Women's Hospital Expansion Completed

The University of South Alabama Children's and Women's Hospital dedicated a new, five-level, 195,000-square-foot expansion on Sept. 12, 2013 and completed the finishing touches on the project in the summer of 2014. The $72.6 million expansion, funded by the USA Health System, the USA Foundation and private gifts, features more space for the hospital's neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, additional operating rooms, and larger patient rooms to better accommodate visitors and families. Vital support services include an enlarged cafeteria and kitchen as well as professional teaching and community education space. Two family rooms have been created by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mobile Inc. More photos of the expansion can be seen here and here.

Thank you for your interest in the Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatric Residency Program at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, AL.

The University of South Alabama offers a four-year residency program for combined training in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Training occurs in a friendly learning environment within the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Program graduates are prepared to enter both specialties in a variety of settings including community-based primary care, hospitalist, academic clinician educator and subspecialty fellowship training.

Pediatric training occurs at the USA Children's and Women's Hospital, a free-standing facility dedicated to providing quality care to the children and women of the Gulf Coast area. Internal Medicine training occurs primarily at the USA Medical Center, an academic tertiary referral center.

Please take a moment to explore our site and learn more about our program.

Program Overview

Residents in our program complete 24 total months of pediatrics and 24 total months of internal medicine. Residents alternate every 3 months between USA Medical Center and USA Children's and Women's Hospital. Thus, a resident starting on pediatrics in July will switch to internal medicine in October and back to pediatrics in January.

Med-Peds residents participate in the clinics of both categorical programs. Med-Peds residents have clinic twice weekly on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Residents will be assigned to have Pediatric clinic on Monday afternoon and Internal Medicine clinic on Wednesday afternoon or vice versa. This assignment will be consistent throughout the entire 4 years of residency.

Most years, our program will accept 2 combined Internal Medicine-Pediatric residents.


For residents interested in pursuing post-residency training, the Internal Medicine Department has three 3-year fellowship programs available in the following subspecialties:

At this time, there are no fellowship programs available in the Department of Pediatrics.
