Collaborative Care Clinic

The Collaborative Care Clinic was founded as a health care collaboration between the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Medicine, Huntsville Regional Campus and the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) College of Nursing. The mission of this collaborative clinic is to facilitate excellent patient care to individuals with acute and/or chronic illnesses as well as provide preventive health care services to patients of all ages. Interdisciplinary/interprofessional health care services will be delivered to patients in order to improve health care outcomes and patient satisfaction with care. 
 
As with the other clinics at the UAB HRMC, we are committed to teaching. As healthcare in the United States becomes more difficult to navigate, healthcare providers who learn to work together in collaborative teams are uniquely positioned to provide a full range of health care services to patients of all ages. Medical students and nurse practitioner students will be working in teams to deliver excellent patient care under the supervision of faculty from both schools. 
 
The Collaborative Care Clinic is open on Tuesday and Thursday from 8am until 5pm. Our clinic is staffed with Family Nurse Practitioners, who are nurses with advanced degrees and training in the management of common healthcare problems. Nurse practitioner training also focuses heavily on teaching patients how to stay healthy and improve health with individual and group education. 
 
UAB and UAH are excited to bring this unique care clinic to the UAB HRMC campus and we are looking forward to working with patients who are already familiar with the other UAB clinics as well as new patients who are seeking a healthcare home.
 

Our Family Nurse Practitioners are:

Tracie Morgan, MSN, CRNP
Yeow Chye Ng, PhD, CRNP
Kimberly Budisalich, MSN, CRNP
Angela Caires, DNP, CRNP
