Welcome to UAB Hospital Medicine Education!

Welcome to UAB Hospital Medicine Education! UAB Hospital has a storied academic history, and thanks to the efforts of giants from our past, UAB stands at the forefront of medical education today. Hospital Medicine at UAB aims to continue the tradition of providing unsurpassed training to our students, residents, and fellows.

UAB Hospital Medicine serves as the leader of inpatient medicine at UAB and excels in the essential aspects of contemporary hospital medicine: high-quality, evidence-based care; procedural and consultative medicine; integrated practice models; throughput efficiency; and MD-APP collaborative practice. We strive to instill these measures in our trainees while providing compassionate care to a diverse patient population – all within a learning environment that fosters inclusivity, diversity, and wellness.

UAB Hospital Medicine offers rotations to nurse practitioner, physician assistant, and medical students; we also train both internal medicine and family medicine residents; and we have developed fellowships for Global Health and Quality and Administration.

A strong foundation in inpatient internal medicine is critical for nearly all fields of medicine. We strive to help you build that foundation and guide you to achieve your career goals, whatever they may be.
