Imagine the bustling streets of a flourishing city nestled in the foothills of the magnificent Appalachian Mountains. Here, in the nation’s third largest hospital, doctors, researchers, and scientists contribute greatly to the development of medicine and life saving techniques. These very same professionals impart their knowledge and experience as they teach our enrolled students. Imagine each student reaching new heights of discovery and knowledge with every class they complete. You now have a picture of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
