After Graduation

Graduates from the UAB Pediatrics Residency Program are well-equipped to enter into any fellowship or general pediatrics practice. On average, approximately 50% of our graduates go into primary care and 50% enter into fellowships.   In the past several years, our graduates have matched in fellowships across the country in all specialties. Those practicing primary care have joined practices in the state of Alabama as well as other states across the nation. We have also had many graduates become hospitalists both here at Children’s as well as other institutions around the country. Below is a list of career paths our residents have chosen in the past few years:
