Cahaba Family Medicine Residency is an unopposed, community-based family medicine training program dually accredited by both the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).

Our family medicine clinic (Cahaba Medical Care) is the sponsoring institution for the program. CMC is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and the Alabama's only Teaching Health Center, which means it receives funding for providing care to uninsured patients while simultaneously housing a residency program. CMC has been a certified Patient Centered Medical Home since 2010. The program is located in a rural part of the state (Centreville, Alabama). Our primary teaching hospital is Bibb Medical Center, which is a 30 bed hospital located just a short walk from our family medicine clinic.

The program has implemented a very innovative and unique approach to its family medicine curriculum.

We call it our Longitudinal Integrated Curriculum (LIC).  It simply means that the majority of the required experiences for family medicine training are spread out over years 1 and 3, instead of in traditional block months.
