UAB is home to the largest hospital in Alabama and the 17th largest in the United States. It has always been an important focus of our university to grow international collaborations and to promote the global exchange of knowledge to create and sustain relationships with physicians and scientists across the globe. The International Medical Education Office serves that purpose by developing and coordinating educational medical programs for UAB students as well as for international visiting medical students who wish to participate in clinical or research electives at UAB.
