Message from the Program Director
Dear UAMS COM Transitional Year Residents,
Congratulations on your recent medical school graduation and welcome to the UAMS College of Medicine Transitional Year Residency Program! This year will be a fun and exciting year as you begin your graduate medical education training and you transition from student to physician. You are now a part of a very noble and privileged profession. As you progress through this sometimes challenging, but always educational, year, remember that your actions and attitudes reflect on your colleagues, facility, and organization. Strive to be a valuable team player, seek to understand others’ perspectives, and soak up every opportunity to get involved and learn new things!
