Medical Student Education
The College of Community Health Sciences functions as the Tuscaloosa Regional Campus for the University of Alabama School of Medicine—which is headquartered in Birmingham—providing clinical training for a cohort of third- and fourth-year medical students. A third of students from the Tuscaloosa Regional Campus typically enter family medicine and other primary care residencies, many in Alabama, while other graduates obtain entry into prestigious residencies across the country in other specialties, including internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, neurology and surgery.
The College is meeting the state of Alabama’s needs for primary care physicians in rural and underserved areas. Our mission is to support the professional goals of current and prospective medical students by serving as a resource to undergraduates and medical students.
