About the Forum                                                              participants in the McCollough Medical Scholars Forum posing with Dr. and Mrs. McCollough

The McCollough Medical Scholars Forum, sponsored by UA’s College of Arts and Sciences, was established by Alabama physician Dr. Gaylon McCollough and his wife, Susan, who are both UA alumni. The Forum’s aim is to emphasize the importance of liberal arts education in the study and practice of medicine. Students have an opportunity to engage in conversation with our guest speakers, invited health care professionals, and faculty members, and other guests of the College, regarding humanistic and social issues in medicine.

Over the years the Forum has established a strong reputation of providing opportunities for connection and conversation between future doctors, current medical students, current practitioners, and the healthcare community.
