The Communications team leads strategic communications efforts for the school, particularly those relating to the Dean’s Office, Admissions, Advancement, Medical Education, and more. We also work closely with University Relations and the Health System Marketing Team to generate coordinated, unified messaging across our academic medical center. Our team maintains the School of Medicine website, produces the weekly newsletter, and manages the school's social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. We also create a variety of publications such as UAB Medicine Magazine and the school’s Annual Report. You can learn more about our individual services below, and we look forward to assisting you with your needs.

  • We work closely with School of Medicine Advancement to produce materials for donor and alumni relations. These include items such as proposals, brochures, invitations, save the dates, posters, etc. Some of the larger proposals require several rounds of drafting and editing, so we ask that you please submit these requests as far in advance as possible. We are aware that many advancement requests are "last-minute" and will always do our best to accommodate these as our capacity allows.
