What are the facilities and clinics like (old/new, well maintained, etc.)?

"Quite a mix of very old and very new. Parts of the med school itself feel pretty old but they are making efforts to renovate some parts currently." Report Response

How do students from this program do after graduation - are they adequately prepared for practice?

"They tend to match well -- above what one's step score might be predict." Report Response

What are rotations like?

"7 core clerkships (Psych, Neuro, Medicine, Surgery, Family med, Peds, OB/Gyn) and 3 required Sub-Internships in the 4th year (Medicine, Ambulatory, Critical Care or Surgical). Not much outpatient exposure if assigned to the Birmingham campus. Also very heavy on the specialty and subspecialty exposure and minimal primary care/bread & butter type exposure. If you want more primary care and on-one-one teaching then a branch campus for clinical years is your best bet." Report Response

How do students from this program do in the Match?

"Generally very well. Above average match rate. Can match into any specialty." Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"UAB and Birmingham are much better than you might think when you first think "Alabama."" Report Response
