Per APGO and CREOG guidelines, the deadline for applications is October 1, 2023. Interview offers will be released on October 24, 2023 at 8:00 a.m. Central time with rolling offers to follow. Interviews will begin no earlier than October 31, 2023, and continue through January. An interview invitation response must be received within 48 hours.

Our program’s interview day will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and consists of a half-day session of interviews with both faculty and residents. We are always sure to leave lots of time for questions and answers and are also open to second looks. However, due to COVID-19 and our efforts to keep all interested parties and our team members safe, all interviews for the 2024-2025 intern class will be conducted virtually per recommendations from APGO, CREOG, and UAMS. More information on the format of the day will be made available upon extension of an invitation to interview.

Policy on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our Residency Program is committed to promoting diversity and fostering a climate and community that value inclusion and equity. Diversity is integral to the goal of achieving excellence in education as well as clinical care and research. Our mission is to promote an inclusive program that actively recruits and trains qualified residents from underrepresented groups in medicine. We support an environment that welcomes residents regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religious or political beliefs, sexual orientation or gender identity.
