Message from the Program Director

Ryan Kraemer 300x420Welcome to the Tinsley Harrison Internal Medicine Residency program website. UAB is a unique and wonderful place to grow as a physician. Our residents provide exceptional care for a diverse patient population with complex medical needs. We provide comprehensive clinical training with an emphasis on clinical reasoning in a supportive and caring learning environment. To quote our first Chair of the Department of Medicine, Dr. Tinsley Harrison, we believe “no greater opportunity, responsibility, or obligation can fall to the lot of a human being than to become a physician.”

Our program structure is intentionally designed to provide a diverse array of clinical experiences and progressive autonomy, so our residents are well prepared to manage any clinical situation upon graduation. Our inpatient training sites include UAB Hospital, a 1,200-bed quaternary care referral center for Alabama and surrounding states, and the Birmingham Veterans Administration Medical Center . . .
