    What do you love about UAB Med-Peds?

    The people are the strongest asset at UAB! From my co-residents to my attendings to the support staff within the hospital and the program administration, UAB is full of people that care about people! The culture of teaching and mentoring is so strong and I am grateful daily for the individuals I have had the joy to train with and learn from.

    What are the strengths of UAB Med-Peds?

    My interview at UAB was the first place where I felt truly at home and felt like I had met a group of close friends the night of my interview dinner. I remember thinking, "these people are all so nice and normal and brilliant!" 2 years into my residency I can confirm my thoughts that night were correct! I have been so impressed by the strength of both categorical programs, the diversity of patients and pathology I have seen in my training, and the excellent teaching and culture of learning on both sides of the street.

    What have you enjoyed most about your UAB Med-Peds residency experience?

    More importantly than any of the amenities the program offers, the people at UAB are truly special and the Med-Peds program is like a family within the UAB community. Life doesn't stop during residency and it was so important to me to have people I could trust in a new city when life would inevitably get tough during the four years of training. I can truly say, I have felt so supported by my co-residents, program directors, and categorical colleagues through several personal life challenges during residency thus far and I know any of my UAB family would be and have been there for me through my best and worst days!

    Birmingham's Best Food and/or Drink

    Big Spoon Creamery! Best ice cream in Birmingham and quite possibly the country.

    Birmingham Must-See

    Ruffner Mountain Overlook—there are so many incredible outdoor spaces in Bham but Ruffner Mountain’s overlook of the city is beautiful, serene, and so peaceful. It’s even better that it’s only a 10 minute drive from downtown!
