Alabama Residency Information
In the 2023 NRMP Match there are approximately 520 PGY-1 slots available for residents in Alabama. The four medical schools in Alabama now graduate over 630 physicians each year seeking graduate training. Our mission is to provide as many slots as possible and thus keep more physicians in Alabama. In 2017 the Alabama Governor and Legislature recognized the need for more opportunities for residency training in the State and funded AMEC to assist in this effort. AMEC is providing funding to up to 12 hospitals to develop new residency programs. In 2023 10 new programs are accredited and accepting residents through AMEC's efforts. Other hospitals are in various phases of development.
