To build a world-class psychiatry program encompassing unmatched clinical care and ground breaking research by investing in young talent and grooming them to success; recruiting and maintaining outstanding faculty, many of whom are often courted by offers from other institutions; and attracting and recruiting world-class faculty who are leaders in the field of psychiatry and recruited world-wide for their expertise in a certain research area.
Achieving Our Vision through Philanthropy
Private philanthropy embraces funding needs not covered by state report, government grants or insurance reimbursements. It is a tool that allows for new lines of research, expansion of programs, recruitment of the best and brightest in the field, and the development of new and innovative psychiatric treatments.
Opportunities for Philanthropy
Training the Future Generation
The State of Alabama has a critical shortage of psychiatrists. By supporting our residency and fellowship programs, you can help us continue to train future generations of clinicians and investigators, and attracting more psychiatrists to the state.
UAB Psychiatry is currently conducting research on psychiatric illnesses including schizophrenia, depression and bipolar disorder, neurodegenerative disorders, substance abuse, and psychiatric disorders of childhood and the elderly.
Establishing an endowed fund named in your honor or that of a loved one is a wonderful way to join the fight against mental illness. A gift of $25,000 or more establishes a fund which may be directed to specific research efforts, faculty support, recruitment efforts, or education of the next generation of physician-investigators. Multi-year pledges are a great way to establish a fund that will support the work of UAB Psychiatry for years to come.
Where it is most needed
Unrestricted support allows the Department’s Chair and departmental leadership to direct contributions to areas where it is needed most.
