Dean’s Message

Med school graduates at commencement

Our alumni make us proud. Whether you’ve gone on to provide world-class care for Arkansans in one of our communities, to teach, heal and discover here at UAMS, or to make your mark around the world, we are honored that you made your journey to become a physician with us.

As College of Medicine alumni, you have helped to make us who we are as a medical school. We are grateful for the many ways you have supported us, with both your resources and your time, and for your ongoing generosity. We value your insights.

Most importantly, you are our ambassadors. Thank you for inspiring young Arkansans to pursue medicine and to come to UAMS. And thank you for using your influence in your community to help others – policymakers, philanthropists and other citizens – to learn more about the College of Medicine and how important UAMS is to our state.

Christopher Westfall, M.D.We hope you will stay connected with us and one another. Stay involved. Stay invested. We share a common vision for a healthier Arkansas and nation – and for the future generations of physicians who, like you, will become our outstanding alumni.


Christopher T. Westfall, M.D.
Dean, College of Medicine
