Educational Research & Innovations in Clinical & Health Sciences (ENRICH) Week, an annual conference for health educators that promotes teaching skills, fosters curriculum innovation, and showcases scholarship and research findings in health education, will have its 2023 slate of events September 19-21.

Momentum in Medicine's third cohort includes an impressive list of 15 women leaders from a variety of roles, departments, and backgrounds within UAB Medicine.

Women in Medicine Month, observed throughout September, serves as a timely reminder of the invaluable contributions that women physicians, biomedical scientists, educators, and health care professionals have made to the field of medicine.

Heersink faculty and staff gathered in different spots around Birmingham to welcome the incoming class of medical students with celebrations.

Many of you may be considering how to best spend your time this summer. To provide some insight, our student co-contributors asked some of their fellow classmates how they spent, or how they wish they had spent, their summer before medical school.

As their first year of medical school comes to an end, our student co-contributors reached out to a few of their fellow MS1s to chat about what this year has meant to them, what they’ve enjoyed the most, and how it has lived up to, or differed from, their expectations.

Deciding where to live is an important factor to consider before beginning your journey as a medical student–but it doesn’t have to be challenging!

At the UAB Heersink School of Medicine, we are committed to creating an inclusive environment that values the diversity of experiences, backgrounds, and interests that our students bring to our school each year. As you make your final decisions, we believe it is important that you get the opportunity to hear from current med students who committed to UAB Heersink from out-of-state. Here are a few of their stories.
