Considering how important health is, I personally find many faults in the way the contents are taught. If you have a global opinion about medicine at UAB, you should consider it’s actually a great place, with many teachers who are brilliant at their specialiality and can provide you with their knowlage.
However, I find most important that not only do they teach us the clinical view of health and how to preserve it, but they go further. Finding out how to diagnose a weird disease is important, but we should prepare health professionals to know how to treat patients with respect and with empacy.
More practice and less concepts should be the way to teach things in order to improve a system which only teaches us to treat them as a sum of diseases to treat.
I must highlight the importance of the UAB having four different hospitals to choose from, which gives you the possibility to explore your options depending on your personal opinions or distance.
