MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The University of Alabama at Birmingham is opening a new medical program in Montgomery.

The UAB Montgomery Regional Medical Campus opens Tuesday at Baptist Medical Center South in Montgomery.

The center will train medical students in areas including family medicine, surgery and pediatrics. Six third-year medical students will be accepted starting in May, and more will arrive next year.

The Montgomery campus joins existing regional campuses in Tuscaloosa and Huntsville, plus the main UAB campus in Birmingham.
