I’m proud to say that over the past five years, the School of Medicine—as a part of the broader enterprise of UAB and UAB Medicine—has experienced outstanding growth in all areas of our mission: clinical care, education, research, and beyond.
Many medical centers have the goal of becoming one of the top twenty NIH-funded research programs in the country, and our institution is no different.
Here at the School of Medicine, we’re accustomed to working among individuals who are undertaking groundbreaking work. Our faculty and staff members are consistently making breakthroughs and using them to push medicine into the future...
In lieu of this year’s engagement survey, we will be transitioning to an opportunity to introduce the use of a Well-Being Index (WBI). The WBI is a validated instrument that was developed at the Mayo Clinic and is now in use in a number of academic medical centers.
In 2018, joining the most elite tier of academic medical research centers is no easy undertaking. In this message, Selwyn M. Vickers, M.D., FACS, senior vice president for medicine and dean of the School of Medicine, shares his vision for creating a more cost-effective and more competitive UAB School of Medicine.
