  • "I graduated with a class of about 60 with most of my peers being individuals I have known since 1st grade. I chose UAB because I knew it would offer me a challenge academically and give me the opportunity to branch out to a big new school full of diverse individuals striving to reach their goals."

    Sierra Jackson BSN Student
  • "UAB was my top choice to pursue a PhD. The education, mentorship, and resources at UAB provided me with skills and connections to be an expert scientist. It is because of my PhD from UAB that I can pursue my passion of conducting research that makes a difference and improves the health of children."

    Jeremy Jordan PhD Graduate

  • "UAB has always been my top choice. When I was in elementary school, someone came to speak to my class about the nursing program at UAB and I had decided that day I wanted to be a UAB nurse. I am glad I get to live out the dream I had when I was a kid."
