UAB Hospital garners two prestigious awards for women's health UAB Hospital is listed among “America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics” by the 2015 Women’s Choice Award and “100 Hospitals with Great Women’s Health Programs” by Becker’s Hospital Review.
“These are exceptional honors that recognize the tremendous efforts of the staff and physicians who work around the clock to provide both routine and comprehensive, cutting-edge health care to women,” said William Andrews, Ph.D., M.D., professor and chair of UAB’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
9 grants awarded to promote teaching innovation Professors from nine disciplines were awarded more than $39,000 in the second annual Teaching Innovation and Development Awards. The funds will support projects including a team-based learning approach to study abroad, simulation training for business and nursing students, and an online laboratory course in justice sciences.
“This is one of the ways we support the new QEP theme, Learning in a Team Environment,” said Jonathan Waugh, Ph.D., faculty director of the UAB Center for Teaching and Learning. “The idea is that we want to stimulate innovation, but we also want to support the well-established and researched ideas that are new to UAB.”
