The Emergency Medicine Residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences has been providing quality post-graduate medical education since 1984. Our residents complete the program and proceed to positions at community hospitals, fellowship programs, and at academic institutions ranging geographically from Hawaii to Massachusetts.
The clinical experience for our residents takes place primarily at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Medical Center (UAMS) and at Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH). UAMS is a tertiary care referral center for the state of Arkansas and is the only Level 1 Trauma Center in the state. The Emergency Department sees primarily adults with an average annual patient volume of 60,000 visits and an admission rate of 30%. With an average annual volume of approximately 48,000 ACH provides an excellent clinical experience in pediatrics. Our residents complete their residency not only having had experience in the pediatric ED, but also the Pediatric ICU as well as with Angel One Transport. Angel One is an air ambulance service that transports critically ill patients from Arkansas and surrounding states to Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to consider UAMS for your Emergency Medicine education. I welcome you to e-mail us with any questions you have about our program.
