In 1954, James Garber Galbraith, M.D., established the Division of Neurosurgery within the Department of Surgery in the UAB Heersink School of Medicine, creating a culture of growth and compassionate care that is still present within the now-Department of Neurosurgery at UAB. In honor of Galbraith's achievements and contributions, the UAB Department of Neurosurgery is proud to present the 39th Annual J. Garber Galbraith, M.D., Scientific Session and Lecture on October 21, 2022.

The Galbraith Lecture is given annually by a guest neurosurgeon who has made significant contributions to the field of neurosurgery at large, while the Galbraith Scientific Session features the research and achievements of both past and present UAB neurosurgery residents. The lecture and scientific session also culminate in a dinner held each year for UAB Department of Neurosurgery faculty, residents and guests.
