MOBILE — Lori White, M.D., recently joined USA Health as a hospitalist at University Hospital and an internal medicine physician at Stanton Road Clinic. With a passion for academic medicine, she is also an associate professor of internal medicine at the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama.
For the past 10 years, White taught residents and medical students as an assistant professor of medicine at the UAB Heersink School of Medicine's campus in Montgomery. When she and her husband moved to the Eastern Shore last year, she was interested in working for USA Health so she could continue teaching internal medicine.
"My favorite part of my job is teaching medical students," she said. "They are the future of our care."
In addition to teaching, White said she enjoys practicing internal medicine because she is able to care for a wide variety of patients in the hospital and clinic setting.
She earned her medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. She completed her residency training in internal medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, White is a member of the American College of Physicians and the Medical Association of the State of Alabama.
