Emily Askew

Hometown: Fort Smith, AR

Medical school: UAMS

Fav thing about UAMS Internal Medicine Residency? The people! The faculty is supportive and every resident is driven and fun to work with.

Fav thing about living in Little Rock or Arkansas? The many outdoor activities to enjoy with my dogs and husband—hiking, walking trails, and only a short drive to the lake.

What you want to do with your life? I plan on doing fellowship, still torn between two fields but excited about both

What do you do outside of the hospital to relax/have fun? Anything with my husband, dogs, and friends. We enjoy being outside, trying new restaurants, and game nights!

If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be? I love animals so maybe a veterinarian? I think I would also enjoy professional organization, like the Marie Kondo’s of the world.

Fav show to binge watch? The Office. Always #1 choice.
