In 1969, the University of Alabama at Birmingham was born—an independent institution rooted in the Magic City, created from the union of a university extension center and a pioneering academic medical center. Since then, UAB has saved lives, solved problems, expanded knowledge, and opened doors. Our ideas and innovations have energized our community and transformed Alabama into a destination for anyone ready to change the world.
