Focusing on Diversity


Diversity and inclusion are not just words we say. Rather, they are an integral part of our culture. We foster diversity of ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation because we value innovative approaches to clinical care for our patients. Robust health disparities research, professional development for women in medicine, and initiatives to advance health equity for LGBTQ patients are a few examples of UAB’s continual commitment to enriching our professional and local communities. 

UAB’s Leaders in Diversity

At every level of leadership—from the residency program to the School of Medicine Dean's Office—we have dynamic and engaging faculty who help advance equity and inclusion across the medical education spectrum.
