Thapa, Priyenka

Hometown: Little Rock, AR

Undergrad/Medical School: Undergrad at University of Notre Dame; Medical school at UAMS

I chose UAMS Internal Medicine Residency because: After seeing several other programs, I realized this was the best fit for me. The camaraderie is palpable, and everyone seems very easy going but works very hard. The faculty is awesome. They are very helpful and care about the education of their residents. UAMS has excellent facilities, as well.

My future plan after residency: Undecided; Possibly ID or GI

Something you would never guess about me / fun fact about me: I was a History major in college.

My favorite part about living in Little Rock: The natural beauty and my family

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: Fantastic China

In my free time, I like to spend time with my family and friends; watch movies and funny TV shows; travel; learn how to cook; play with my teacup Yorkie named Max; read.
