UAB is home to the largest hospital in Alabama and the 17th largest in the nation. It has always been an important focus of our University to increase international collaborations and to promote the exchange of knowledge to create and sustain relationships with physicians and scientists across the globe. The International Advanced Clinical Training (InterACT) Program serves that purpose well, as our international trainees eventually return to their home countries and use their UAB experience to professionally advance and become academic and medical leaders.

InterACT provides international trainees with strong clinical and research experience as well as an education of the current U.S. medical system as it is conducted at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Throughout their tenure in the program, trainees actively participate and work alongside UAB students, researchers, and physicians at UAB research and medical centers. Ultimately, trainees are expected to significantly enhance their education, research experience, and diagnostic and treatment expertise.
