  • I wouldn’t have had this research opportunity and mentorship anywhere else. Between research and teaching, I have grown professionally at UAB. I feel really prepared
    to go to medical school.

  • There are so many patients in our state who have little to no access to subspecialty care like nephrology and have limited access to home dialysis care, and that’s the reason we are doing this. As soon as telehealth carts are deployed, UAB physicians could get to any county in the state.
    Eric Wallace, M.D., nephrologist and director of an innovative telehealth program at UAB
  • When I came here I decided to do everything, and that really enriched me and made me who I am today.
