The pursuit of excellence in medical education demands a balance between tradition and innovation. As biomedical science has evolved, so have the methods by which our students learn, bringing increased emphasis on problem-based learning, small group interaction, and the use of technology to augment – but never replace – the role of the highly skilled clinical educator.

We seek to enhance education across all platforms and programs with significant institutional and philanthropic investments in:

  • Simulation learning – using new technology in training to foster teamwork and skill-building
  • Improving and updating our classrooms and laboratories
  • Transformational naming opportunities – naming buildings, facilities, programs, endowments, and more
  • Strengthening service opportunities for our students and residents, such as through Equal Access Birmingham, our student-run, community-based clinic for Birmingham’s underserved population
