Welcome from the Program Director

Welcome to UAMS/ACH! In our combined medicine-pediatric residency program, we train physicians to be excellent internists and pediatricians, but with that little something extra that combined training provides. Our goal is to produce graduates who are capable of providing high-quality care to adults and children in the clinic or hospital setting. Many of our graduates choose careers in primary care, but others have used their training as a jumping-off point for a subspecialty or hospitalist career.  As a combined program, we strive to maintain a med-peds identity, but we also work to seamlessly integrate clinical activities between our two categorical programs.  We have great facilities at UAMS and at Arkansas Children’s Hospital; both are tertiary care centers for the whole state, and you have access to all subspecialties in both of our primary hospitals.  Our faculty are outstanding educators, clinicians, and scholars.  We think that you’ll find Little Rock to be a great place to live and work – the weather is pleasant, and the people are friendly!
