Peyton, Caleb Andrew

Hometown: New Orleans, LA

Undergrad: William Carey University (Hattiesburg, MS)

Medical School: University of Mississippi Medical Center (Jackson, MS)

I chose UAMS Internal Medicine Residency: I got the vibe during my interview that this is a close-knit program which values its residents. The attendings seem to truly care about the learning process for residents. I felt like I fit in well and look forward to working with everyone.

My future plan after residency: I hope to pursue a hematology/oncology fellowship following residency.

Something you would never guess about me / fun fact about me: I am a big time poker player. One of my ultimate goals is to eventually compete in the World Series of Poker Main Event.

My favorite part about/ looking forward to exploring in Little Rock: There are so many outdoor activities such as hiking or kayaking that I look forward to checking out.

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: Doe’s Eat Place. I tried it for the first time during my interview and loved it. For all of you House of Cards fans out there, I plan on making Doe’s my “Freddy’s.”

In my free time, I like to: Play poker, travel, and keep up with my favorite sport teams (Geaux Tigers!; sorry to all you Razorback fans).
