General Pediatrics

Division of General Pediatrics / Adolescent Medicine

The UAB Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine at Children's Hospital has excelled in each of its unique roles of teaching, research, and clinical care responsibilities of the medical center. Faculty in General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine supervise care provided by residents and students in a variety of clinics ranging from primary care to specialty services through UAB and The Children's Hospital of Alabama. Additionally, several faculty see patients at the UAB Sparks Center for evaluation of developmental and behavioral issues. Because of our faculty's unique roles in teaching, research, and clinical care, some links on this page will take you to non-Children's sites.
