Mission and Vision
UAB Medicine is committed to improving the health and lives of those we serve by providing care that is culturally competent and socially responsible. As we work toward this vision, we continually keep in mind that culture change is a process. It requires an intentional focus on our core values and mission to guide our efforts to create a world-class health system where our patients, employees, and students have a sense of belonging, dignity, and justice.
UAB Medicine’s mission is to deliver world-class patient care to the residents of Alabama and beyond, advance medical science through pioneering research, and train the sharpest medical minds. We are deeply committed to a patient- and family-centric approach to providing care, so we strive to make every patient encounter a positive one. This dedication to excellence is what makes UAB Medicine a preferred provider of care and helps us attract the best and brightest staff, while setting the highest standards for medical innovation and education.
