Harris, Zach

Hometown: Alma, AR

Undergrad/Medical School: Arkansas Tech University/UAMS

I chose UAMS Internal Medicine Residency because: Dr. Saccente is the program director and one of the most genuine people I know. That was enough for me. But moreover, the residents within the program work well and have fun together (like a lot of fun), attendings are very interested in teaching, and the diversity of the patient pathology is the best you can find anywhere.

My future plan after residency: Chief Resident

Something you would never guess about me/fun fact about me: My wife and I have been foster parents to four wonderful boys under the age of two. We also have one daughter that is almost two, but that is known to everyone! One other thing: I grow a pretty serious beard, don’t be alarmed.

My favorite part about living in Little Rock: You have all the amenities of a city but 15 minutes from just about any outdoor activity you want to do.

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: Grady’s, David’s (my favorite burger in Little Rock), ZaZas

In my free time: I like to play guitar, rock climb, hunt, go to the movies, and wrestle with my daughter- we also have the occasional tea party.
