Sanders, Riley


Hometown: Perry, Georgia

Undergrad/Medical School: Valdosta State University / Mercer University School of Medicine

I chose UAMS Internal Medicine Residency because: I liked the faculty and facilities at UAMS, and I am going on to do ophthalmology residency here after internship

My future plan after residency: Either private practice general ophthalmologist in a rural location, or academic retina specialist in a city

Something you would never guess about me / fun fact about me: I can play the guitar while walking a tightrope.

My favorite part about living in Little RockĀ  It’s a medium-size city with good entertainment and parks, low cost of living, and close proximity to nature and outdoor activities.

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: Trio’s

In my free time: I like to fish, grill, exercise, travel, play music, learn new tricks and skills.
