Health Care

Symposium 01The UAB School of Health Professions has systematically evolved to become a key player in training healthcare leaders at all levels – from undergraduate students to CEOs. We help healthcare organizations increase efficiency and improve outcomes via training and collaboration.

We leverage our industry partnerships to make meaningful impact today. We leverage our internal resources to build programs to make meaningful impact tomorrow. And we leverage both of these groups simultaneously to produce leaders who can capitalize on these assets forever.
