University Medical Center is a multi-specialty practice dedicated to providing comprehensive patient-centered care while improving and promoting the health of West Alabama.

UMC is operated by The University of Alabama College of Community Health Sciences, which also functions as a regional campus of the University of Alabama School of Medicine. We provide direct health care services to the community as well as train medical students and resident physicians under the supervision of skilled and dedicated College clinicians. From two locations, one on the UA campus and the other in Northport in the Fitness One building on McFarland Boulevard, we provide patient-centered care in the areas of: primary care, including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and geriatrics; psychiatry and behavioral medicine; women’s health, including obstetrics and gynecology; and sports medicine.

  • Patient-Centered Care

    We provide care for the whole family and for the full spectrum of needs — from preventive care and wellness exams to management of chronic conditions, to treatment for acute illness and accidents.

  • Comprehensive Services

    We conveniently provide on-site laboratory and x-ray services, nutrition counseling and mental health counseling for individuals and families.

  • Two Locations

    We provide comprehensive patient-centered services from two locations, one on The University of Alabama campus and the other in the Fitness One building in Northport.

  • UA Faculty-Staff Clinic

    The Faculty-Staff Clinic at University Medical Center provides University of Alabama employees with quick and convenient non-emergency medical care. The clinic is devoted exclusively to the care of UA employees and their families covered under the University’s BlueCross BlueShield of Alabama health insurance plan.


Research shows that patients who have family doctors live longer, healthier lives and are less likely to be hospitalized or die from chronic illnesses, according to the American Board of Family Medicine. Choosing a primary care physician means you are choosing a health partner who is dedicated to working with you to keep you healthy.
