The ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy) Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham was established more than 30 years ago. ECT is used in the treatment of severe depression and other psychiatric disorders. At the University of Alabama, ECT is conducted under the direct supervision of a psychiatrist and anesthesiologist, and we apply modern monitoring devices and anesthetic medications to provide safe and effective treatments.
