Thanks for Visiting Our Alumni Page
2018-2019 was a record-setting year for our program! We are proud to report that several of our PGY-3 residents were recognized with national awards:
Daniel Holleyman received the Steve Tantama, M.D., Military Excellence Award from the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association.
Meryll Pampolina received the Resident Rocks It! Award from the American Association of Women Emergency Physicians, as well as a Resident Award and Travel Grant from the Academy for Women in Academic Emergency Medicine -Brian Russ received the Resident Education Award from the Academy of Emergency Ultrasound.
Other highlights of the academic year included the creation of a resident peer mentorship program; a recurring Rosh Review Quiz Bowl team competition; recurring FemInEM-inspired gatherings for female residents and faculty; a Wellness Day in conference; the ever popular off-campus Dive Medicine workshop; and our first annual Wellderness Medicine day, which was held at Pinnacle Mountain and featured multiple wilderness medicine skill stations.
In mid June, we celebrated our graduating PGY-3s’ successful completion of their residency training. This class left its mark on UAMS through their many contributions to our department and the institution generally. Our 2019 residency graduates will join prior generations of program alumni practicing throughout Arkansas and in other states stretching from Kentucky to Florida to Texas.
In late June, we welcomed our new interns and introduced them to the UAMS family during an evening at Fassler Hall. The interns completed their orientation in July and had a chance to bond as a class during the annual intern retreat, which culminated in an afternoon on Lake Hamilton (thanks to Dr. Fowler for lending us his boat!) and dinner at Deluca’s Pizzeria in Hot Springs.
As we start the 2019-2020 academic year, we’re excited to announce the creation of the UAMS Division of EM Education! Dr. Travis Eastin will serve as the inaugural Division Chief. Dr. Sarah Greenberger will become the new residency program director, working alongside Dr. Rachael Freeze-Ramsey, who will continue her excellent work at our Associate Residency Director. We’re thrilled to have three terrific chief residents— Ryan Matthews, Courtney Newsome, and Bethany Ruby— helping to lead our residency this year. New features of the program this summer include a shift towards active learning in conference and the introduction of Mentorship Families that include both residents and faculty. With our new Division of Education, we’re anticipating the enhancement and expansion of our department’s educational offerings and continued success in medical education!
