Originally from Madison, Alabama, Ben McCafferty, M.D., moved to Birmingham for college. He loved the city so much that he stayed for medical school and now residency which offically makes him a "UAB lifer." During his second year of medical school, he became interested in interventional radiology because of its unique blend of imaging expertise, technical procedures, and advanced technology. In his free time, Ben enjoys ultimate frisbee, videogames, hiking, and eating any dessert in sight.

What do you love most about being a UAB Radiology Resident? 

Many programs can offer what UAB has: pioneering research, diverse pathology, enthusiastic educators, daily didactics, and ample volume for learning. What set UAB apart was the genuine care for the resident within the learning environment as well as outside of the reading room. I love the special camaraderie that is encouraged and fostered between residents, faculty, and staff within this program.
