For the second year in a row, the School of Health Professions' Physician Assistant Studies program wins the annual Gurney Derby!

Public Enemas #1, a team of first-year PA students, took home the trophy when another UAB PA team, Hungry, Hungry, HIPAAs was disqualified after a player fell. Their disqualification led to another team of UAB PA students - the I-V Leaguers - to take home the runner-up plaque.

Watch our YouTube video to see all the action and reaction to an epic battle among three UAB Physician Assistant Studies teams!




We also want to say congratulations to our Biomedical Sciences program's team - the BMD Ballers. The BMD team took home the prestigious Gurney Derby Hubcap! This is given every year in honor of the team with the slowest overall time. Editor's note - they did not finish last though as several teams were disqualified for losing players in the preliminary heats.
