ABOUT University of Alabama at Birmingham

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) traces its roots to the 1859 founding of the Medical College of Alabama and the 1936 opening of the Birmingham Extension Center of The University of Alabama. In 1945 the Medical College of Alabama was moved from Tuscaloosa to Birmingham and the University's Medical Center was founded. Later, in November of 1966, the Extension Center and the Medical Center were merged to form the "University of Alabama in Birmingham," an organizational component of The University of Alabama (in Tuscaloosa). In 1969 UAB became an independent institution, one of the autonomous universities within the newly created three-campus University of Alabama System. Today, UAB is a comprehensive urban university with a nationally recognized academic health center. UAB is the only public, four-year degree granting university in the state's largest metropolitan area. UAB is the largest research institution in the state of Alabama and the university is the largest employer in Birmingham. A comprehensive chronology of the history of The University of Alabama at Birmingham and its predecessor entities is found below. Chronology maintained by Tim L. Pennycuff and last updated 23 May 2018.

Beginning in Fall 2018, UAB’s Visa Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) will be provided by United HealthCare. This plan gives UAB students access to a national network of preferred providers in all 50 states as well as the same level of protection wherever their studies or life might take them. Students currently enrolled in the 2017-18 SHIP will automatically be transferred to the new plan on August 15, 2018 with no break in coverage. Additionally, new students who will begin their UAB coursework in July and are required to have health insurance coverage will be registered in the new health insurance program. Once enrolled, the premium cost for the semester will be added to the student’s account in mid-July.
