Middleton, Derek

Hometown: Dardanelle, Arkansas

Medical School: UAMS

I chose UAMS Internal Medicine Residency because: For one, this is my home state but I also really enjoyed medical school here and knew how good the staff would be throughout residency.

My future plan after residency: I am mostly open to the idea of pursuing a fellowship after residency. I enjoyed heme/onc during medical school but I have not ruled out any of the other fellowships.

Something you would never guess about me / fun fact about me: Before medical school I was a Navy combat corpsman with marine infantry.

My favorite part about living in Little Rock: The abundance of trails!

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: Bonefish Grill

In my free time: I like to hang out with friends, play with my dog, and go jogging.
