Med-Peds residency education is targeted to teach the delivery of superior medical care to children and adults in inpatient and outpatient settings. Our goal is to educate residents in a comprehensive care model: to prepare our graduates to practice primary care, enter into hospital medicine, or a sub-subspecialty career with a solid base of knowledge. This knowledge base and the habits of life-long learning that we aim to instill in our graduates will provide a foundation for many years of superb patient care.  Although our graduates practice all over the United States, our primary aim is to train superior clinicians for practice in Arkansas.

In our combined med-peds 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 primary care. 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; 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!
