Applicants are notified to submit their preferences for campus assignment at the time they complete their committee interviews. The decision to accept or not accept an applicant is made independent of the applicant's campus preferences.
All students spend the first two years of medical school on the Birmingham campus. For the Core Clerkships and Medicine Acting Internships, students are assigned to one of the four clinical campuses: Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery or Tuscaloosa. While students are required to complete their Core Clerkships on their assigned campus, fourth year activities — excluding the required Internal Medicine Acting Internships — may be taken on any of the four clinical campuses.
