UAB Medicine was created in 2009 as a brand to distinguish our community hospitals from our academic university brand. It was also intended to be a way to enhance our three missions. UAB Medicine is not a formal entity, rather an operating model comprised of the UAB School of Medicine, UAB Health System, and the University of Alabama Health Services Foundation. Together, these three organizations collaborate closely through an executive management structure called the Joint Operating Leadership (JOL).
