UAMS Regional Programs has a number of initiatives in place to help students learn and pursue a health career. These activities start in junior high and high school, continue through college and into medical school, or other graduate residency programs.

For Health Care

Regional Programs works to help health care professionals in rural areas succeed. This includes making use of emerging technologies to provide multiple medical education and consulting efforts, as well as helping to connect qualified individuals with job opportunities across the state.

Community Members

The backbone of the UAMS Regional Programs efforts is improving community members’ health. To this end, UAMS Regional Programs works to increase the number of local health care providers, help train and educate health care professionals already in the community, and provide health education and other services to community members.
