Welcome to St. Vincent’s East Family Medicine
Established in 1977, St. Vincent’s East Family Medicine Residency Program (formerly Medical Center East) in Birmingham, Alabama is a community-based, solo residency program dedicated to a strong tradition of excellence in patient care, service and medical education.
Faculty members bring a wealth of experience and broadly varied talents to the program contributing to a balanced and well-rounded educational program. All faculty members are board certified and hold volunteer clinical faculty appointments with University of Alabama School of Medicine.
The residency clinic patient base is diverse in many respects, including age, social and economic strata, race, and ethnicity. Such a multiplicity of patients adds depth and further value to an already outstanding clinical situation.
In over 30 years, more than 125 physicians have been trained in Family Medicine earning the respect of medical staffs, patients, and communities over many states. Many graduates remain in Alabama to practice in a wide variety of clinical settings: rural and urban, solo and group, inpatient and outpatient, academic and community-based.
The reason for staying is simple: they have found the ingredients of a fruitful and fulfilling career…an outstanding education; commitment to the highest quality medicine; a tradition of faith and care to the underserved; a wealth of medical resources; a strong patient base and following; and an incomparable life that only a city like Birmingham can offer.
