Clinical Learning Environment

Our program offers residency training in a full spectrum of practice settings:

The University of South Alabama is a major referral center for the Gulf Coast and is especially noted for its trauma center and high risk intensive care nursery. It currently includes an acute care hospital, the USA Medical Center, and the USA Children's & Women's Hospital; combined, these two hospitals are licensed for over 550 beds. Each facility has its own clinical laboratory, and these facilities provide a core experience in anatomic pathology involving about 11,000 surgical pathology specimens and over 10,000 cytopathology specimens per year.

Located at the USA Medical Center, in a facility shared by the medical center and the state, is a division of the State Department of Forensic Sciences. This building houses the offices of the medical examiner and supporting services in forensic serology, trace evidence, ballistics, and toxicology.

Teaching facilities are located on each hospital campus and in the Medical Sciences Building on the main university campus in West Mobile.

The USA Mitchell Cancer Institute includes some of the leading cancer specialists (medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists) in the nation. They work closely with local and regional hospitals and physicians so patients have access to the latest cancer treatments without leaving the area. The research carried on at MCI is intended to accelerate the translation of new knowledge into novel therapies and diagnostic tools.
