The UAB Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology was first established in 1945 and is now a nationally recognized leader in obstetrics and gynecology education. Our first resident completed training in 1950 and since then, more than 250 physicians have chosen the department for specialty training.
For more than 60 years, UAB OB/GYN alumni have provided highly skilled and compassionate care to women throughout our local, state and regional communities. One out of every three OB/GYNs currently practicing in Alabama was trained at UAB. Whether bringing a new life into the world or providing cutting-edge cancer care, UAB alumni are making a significant impact on our community’s health and helping shape the future of our specialty and many subspecialties. In fact, a number of faculty and alumni hold keep leadership positions in national organizations.
These leadership roles are of utmost importance to the future of our specialty, and it is our goal to prepare our residents and fellows to confidently take on these roles and lead our specialty for years to come.
We are proud to be part of the UAB OB/GYN alumni family, and we are committed to providing opportunities for you to stay connected with the Department and your fellow alumni.

Information on our Residency Program as well as the faculty, fellows, and residents:
Special Delivery is a Department of OB/GYN Office of Education newsletter that contains a host of information on the residency program, special events, faculty, fellow, and resident accomplishments, teaching tips, curricular announcements, general departmental and program communications.
As we look to the future of our programs, we have identified several strategic initiatives that will help ensure our educational mission remains innovative, patient-centered, and evidencebased. Through key investments in these areas, our residents and fellows will have the confidence and character they need to excel as clinicians and surgeons, physician-scientists, and members of their community.
To help accomplish these goals, we have developed the UAB OB/GYN Fund for Excellence in Education. Gifts from alumni, faculty and friends will help leverage investments from the School of Medicine and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and ensure we can continue to provide the highest quality educational experience in obstetrics and gynecology.
We hope you will join us in support this exciting iniative. Together, we will accomplish great things.
