Description of University of Alabama at Birmingham

The UAB Vision: A world-renown research university and medical center - a first choice for education and health care. Ours is a remarkable and singular story in higher education. From our origins as a fledgling medical complex and modest “extension center” of the University of Alabama in the mid-20th century, UAB has evolved into one of the most dynamic and productive universities of the 21st century. In four short decades since becoming an autonomous campus in 1969, this institution has risen to global renown for our intensely collaborative research and patient care, our novel academic programs, and our robust culture of innovation. The remarkable story that began more than four decades ago continues daily all over our campus and throughout our community, propelled by the collaborative, pioneering spirit that is in the very DNA of this institution. We hope you will consider joining our students and faculty who are writing the next momentous chapter in that story, forging a brighter future for Birmingham, Alabama, and the nation, and discovering the knowledge that can truly change our world
