Dr. Jerrilyn Jones will be the inaugural Director of the UAMS Post Baccalaureate Program within the College of Medicine. As many of you know, she was recently promoted to Associate Professor of EM and has been serving our state as the Medical Director of Preparedness at ADH. What a year it has been for Dr. Jones!
This innovative program is designed to create an educational bridge for Arkansas residents who come from socially, economically or geographically disadvantaged backgrounds who have faced challenges in the medical school admissions process. This program will develop and prepare them with the advanced critical thinking skills and additional foundational knowledge they would need to be successfully admitted and graduate from the UAMS COM. Students in this program will also have the option of completing a Masters of Public Health degree at UAMS.
