Christian Williams, DO


Hometown: Birmingham, AL
Undergrad: Fisk University
Medical School: Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine-Auburn (VCOM-Auburn)
What do I enjoy doing in my free time: During my free time I enjoy trying new restaurants (especially brunch places with friends), reading, trying new recipes, attending painting classes, doing group workout classes (Zumba, Pilates, etc). I also enjoy going to music and food festivals.  

Interesting tidbits: During Covid, I learned that I have an interest in gardening and growing house plants. If I weren’t a physician, I’d probably be a chef or baker. Even though I don’t currently have a pet, I love animals! I enjoy planning events and trips, decorating and interior design.
What do I like about our residency: I thoroughly enjoyed how kind and genuine everybody was on interview day. I also really like how this program promotes community healthcare service, focuses on serving the underserved, and incorporates a strong focus on women’s health into the curriculum. 
Career aspirations: To work in an underserved urban area where I can truly practice community medicine. I also have an interest in women’s health/obstetrics and preventative medicine
