I'm looking at relocating after graduation and I was looking for information about Birmingham and specifically UAB. I want to go into Critical Care (or possibly ER/Trauma) and then eventually I'd like to look at pursuing CRNA. Any info about the city and specifically the hospital would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to allnurses! Have you tried the main UAB website? It has tons of infomation about the school and city. It also has a link for hospital jobs there as well. UAB has just built a new hospital with a 40 bed ER with all the bells and whistles you could imagine. The website also has a virtual tour of the new hospital.
Heres a link for you... www.uab.edu

If you're looking at UAB, check out www.trilliumhr.com
(they do all the hiring for UAB medical, evidently).
Also, this site has info about a whole buncha cities across the US, I found some good info on Birmingham there.
When I spoke with a recruiter, she told me that UAB was looking at hiring new grads, to help fill their new units, so you shouldn't have a big problem getting in, though I'm not sure what they'd have available in critical care.

I too am looking to relocate to B'ham for anesthesia school this fall and would like some help locating a good neighborhood. I want to be within 15-20 minutes or closer of UAB and will need to buy a house. Any suggestions for location would be GREATLY appreciated.
