eabTry

Equal Access Birmingham is a student run-initiative in the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education of the University of Alabama School of Medicine. Through EAB, students engage in co-curricular service experiences with the underserved and vulnerable populations of Birmingham, AL. Through service, EAB exposes medical students to clinical and socioeconomic factors that contribute to health disparities. In this way a much larger goal is accomplished: To train future doctors to provide quality care for all individuals and continue to work in underserved communities into their careers. This outlet provides medical students with the opportunity to work with and learn from their community. While the medical students that volunteer with EAB are a diverse group and will travel on to different paths as physicians, they will always take with them the skills and knowledge that they learned with Equal Access Birmingham.
