We train world-class doctors
The UAMS College of Medicine has educated and trained the vast majority of Arkansas’ physicians since 1879. As an integral component of the state’s only comprehensive academic health center, we prepare clinicians and scientists to make their mark around the world.
What’s special about us?
We may have been around a long time, but our curriculum is always evolving to reflect the rapid advances in biomedical knowledge and new, more effective approaches to medical education. We will teach you to think critically and to understand and apply basic science knowledge to clinical practice. We have been a leader in simulation education for many years, helping our students transition to clinical training settings with confidence. Our dedicated faculty members, comprehensive advising program and Academic Houses help students grow professionally and personally.
