Dec. 6, 2021 | Hillary Williams, M.D., a specialist in movement disorders, has joined the Department of Neurology in the College of Medicine at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) as an assistant professor.
Williams is a native Arkansan who recently completed a two-year fellowship in movement disorders at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, which Lee Archer, M.D., chair of the UAMS Department of Neurology, called “one of the more prestigious movement disorder fellowships in the country.”
She earned her medical degree at UAMS, where she also completed her residency in neurology.
Her expertise and clinical interests in movement disorders include Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, Huntington’s disease, dystonia and ataxia. She is trained in deep brain stimulation programming and the administration of botulinum toxin. She places an emphasis on providing inclusive, affirming care.
“Her addition puts us at four fellowship-trained movement disorder specialists and solidifies our position as a top movement disorder center in the region,” Archer said. “During her last year of residency here, the graduating class of medical students voted her resident of the year, so we look forward to utilizing her teaching skills and her outstanding clinical skills.”
Williams is seeing patients in the fifth-floor clinic at the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute on UAMS’ Little Rock campus.
