In March, many of our colleagues will be recognized for their years of service working at UAB and the Department of Pathology. The UAB Service Awards proudly honors those employees who have made a significant career commitment to the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The program is designed to recognize and express appreciation to employees at each five-year milestone who have completed five or more years of service to UAB. A presentation is held in March for non-hospital employees having completed the required years of service by Dec. 31 of the preceding year.

In 2019, UAB had 1,118 employees eligible for service award recognition. Click here to meet the 2019 Service Award Recipients with 20 or more years of service. We appreciate your ongoing dedication to the continuing success of the University‚Äôs mission and vision. On Friday, March 13, the Department will host a recognition ceremony for our department's many award recipients.
