The UAB Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology was first established in 1945 and is now a nationally recognized leader in obstetrics and gynecology education. Our first resident completed training in 1950 and since then, more than 250 physicians have chosen the department for specialty training.

For more than 60 years, UAB OB/GYN alumni have provided highly skilled and compassionate care to women throughout our local, state and regional communities. One out of every three OB/GYNs currently practicing in Alabama was trained at UAB. Whether bringing a new life into the world or providing cutting-edge cancer care, UAB alumni are making a significant impact on our community’s health and helping shape the future of our specialty and many subspecialties. In fact, a number of faculty and alumni hold key leadership positions in national organizations.

These leadership roles are of utmost importance to the future of our specialty, and it is our goal to prepare our residents and fellows to confidently take on these roles and lead our specialty for years to come.

We are proud to be part of the UAB OB/GYN alumni family, and we are committed to providing opportunities for you to stay connected with the Department and your fellow alumni.
