UAB is an integral part of Birmingham, and Birmingham is integral to UAB. Birmingham earned its “Magic City” moniker as a booming steel city in the late 19th century, but lately the magic comes from the city’s transformation as a dining mecca and urban renewal hotspot – and UAB is right in the middle of it. The campus is within walking distance of some of the best parks, entertainment, and dining in the region.
A pre-employment background investigation is performed on candidates selected for employment. Physicians and other clinical faculty candidates who will be employed by the University of Alabama Health Services Foundation (UAHSF) or other UAB Medicine entities, must successfully complete a pre-employment drug and nicotine screen to be hired.
UAB is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and family-friendly environment in which all faculty and staff can excel and achieve work/life balance irrespective of, race, national origin, age, genetic or family medical history, gender, faith, gender identity and expression as well as sexual orientation.
