  • Rise and Shine

    Our Division Director Dr. Nichole Lohr starts her day with a cup of coffee at a nearby cafe. Just blocks away from campus, she trades morning traffic for a brisk walking commute.

  • Genuine Southern Charm

    Whether it is a smiling colleague, a grateful patient, or a city mural—you can expect a warm welcome at every turn!

  • Savor the Flavor

    When it comes to lunch, there's no shortage of local eateries in easy walking distance. This day, it's tasty tacos with the CVD fellows.

  • Collegial Consultation

    At UAB, collaboration is a lifestyle. From the CICU to the EP reading room to the Cath Lab, our team works together to better serve our patients.

  • Friendly Faces

    As Dr. Lohr leaves for the day, she waves goodbye to a fellow physician on the way to her downtown loft apartment. Another great day at the University of Alabama at Birmingham draws to a close.

Wisconsin Native Amazed by Alabama

If you had told me when I was at the Medical College of Wisconsin that I’d one day lead the UAB Division of Cardiovascular Disease in Birmingham, Alabama, I would not have believed you, but life has a way of making the unbelievable a reality. When I came to visit the city, I was immediately captivated by its beauty, the culture, and the community. I hope that our warm and welcoming environment will inspire you to come visit yourself. We sure would love to have you. — Nicole Lohr, MD, PhD, Division Director
