Welcome to Biomedical Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham! We are proud to be one of only a handful of colleges in the country to offer an undergraduate major in Biomedical Sciences – a combination of the study of the human body and medicine. We offer both a major and minor, and provide students with opportunities for intellectual, professional, and personal growth in the context of a human-based science curriculum.

I invite you to learn more about the Biomedical Sciences major, admission, career opportunities, and meet our faculty, staff, and students by browsing through our website.
