Thank you for your interest in the Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. As you will see, our program is proud of the balance we have among our strong clinical services in Obstetrics, Women's Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Gynecologic Oncology, and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. The UAB Gynecology program continues to be ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top programs in the United States.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is an urban university consisting of a nationally recognized medical center with six health-related schools and a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate university. The university proper is centered around the UAB Medical Center, which is the hub of medical and health-related programs for the entire University of Alabama system.

In early 2010, we opened a world-class Women and Infants Center at UAB. Standing at over 400,000-square-feet, the facility is designed to ensure that the highest level of care is available for newborns, pregnant women, and women with gynecologic cancers or other women's health problems.

In addition, many of our faculty members serve as national leaders in OB/GYN, with interests in clinical management, research, health policy, and medical education. In fact, the department has been in the top 5 for NIH funding in the United States, compared to all departments of OB/GYN over the past decade. A number of opportunitites are also provided to hear from our many nationally renowned researchers on work that will one day change the standards of care.

These factors, combined with our large volume of patient care, help create the foundation upon which our residency is built. Our residents graduate well-prepared for practice, and many successfully pursue fellowships in one of the OB/GYN subspecialties.

Thank you for your interest in our residency program. After you review this site, we hope you will be pleased with the opportunities the program has to offer. We look forward to your application.
