APBRN Banner

The Alabama Practiced Based Research Network (APBRN) is a voluntary consortium of community-based primary care providers who aim to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes by integrating research into their daily practice of medicine.

Since 2000, through a Coordinating Center housed in the DFCM Research Division, the APBRN has engaged in over 20 collaborative projects with researchers from a variety disciplines. The Coordinating Center helps to facilitate collaborations and provides logistical support for research carried out in community-based clinical settings.

As of 2017, APBRN membership included over 160 physicians. Most are in private practice or health system affiliated. The majority are Family Medicine, but Internal Medicine is also well represented. Members include faculty from all four UA campuses (Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery, and Tuscaloosa) as well as several family medicine residency programs and Federally Qualified Health Centers.
