Morgan Tripod M.D.


Hometown: Paragould, AR

Medical school: UAMS

Fav thing about UAMS Internal Medicine Residency? The people! Everyone is incredibly nice and supportive. There is a great balance between help and autonomy.

Fav thing about living in Little Rock or Arkansas? I love the Arkansas outdoors!  Any outdoor activity that you love to do can be found in Arkansas, and most are only a short drive from Little Rock.  Day hikes to Pinnacle happen to be my favorite and I try to go weekly.

What you want to do with your life? I am trying to decide between GI v. Hospitalist.  Regardless, I would like to stay in academics.

What do you do outside of the hospital to relax/have fun? If I’m not outside enjoying nature, I love reading, board games, and horror movies.

If you weren’t a doctor, what would you be? I think I’d be a large animal vet or fiction writer.

Fav show to binge watch? I can always watch Parks and Rec and guilty pleasure is Criminal Minds.

Fun fact about yourself that not a lot of people know? I can give some great book and movie recommendations.
