Introduction to UAMS Emergency Medicine
Welcome from the Program Director
Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about UAMS!
Our UAMS emergency medicine residency program is unique in that it includes many of “the only…” in Arkansas: the only university medical center, only Level 1 trauma center, and more. UAMS provides specialized pathway care in stroke, trauma, and vascular care that isn’t available anywhere else in Arkansas. We are a transplant center and a national leader in the care of multiple myeloma. This means that many of the sickest or most critically-injured people in Arkansas–from newborns to the elderly–are cared for by our residents, so our ED is an amazing environment in which to learn both the art and science of emergency medicine.
Our training program is progressive, and our residency leadership is passionate about medical education. We strive to provide our residents with all the necessary tools, resources, and guidance they need to become excellent emergency physicians and to successfully achieve their future goals. We’re constantly updating and innovating to ensure we offer the best educational opportunities possible to our residents, so that they’re well prepared to work wherever their careers in EM may take them. Our novel shared ownership philosophy means that our residents are actively engaged in the administration of our program. Residents work collaboratively with our program leadership to make decisions and develop new residency initiatives. We truly believe in the importance of wellness, and we care about our residents both as physicians in training and also as people.
We are looking for residents who are bright, creative, curious, growth-oriented, and compassionate. We love how the diversity of our residents and faculty harmonize to create our vibrant UAMS emergency medicine community. We’re seeking individuals who are committed to their education and excited about actively contributing to our residency community. We want our residency graduates to be healers, teachers, scholars, and leaders, who shoot for the stars and use the knowledge and skills they developed during their training to help make our world a better place.
We’d love to meet you and show you what UAMS and Little Rock have to offer. Our residents and faculty hail from all over the United States and are drawn by the outstanding clinical, educational, and research opportunities at UAMS. As a department, we come together every day to provide exceptional emergency medical care to patients from every corner of Arkansas and beyond. As a family, we support each other, push each other, learn together, and laugh together. We believe UAMS is a special place to work and learn, and we hope you’ll consider joining our team!
