We are excited to offer the opportunity for select medical students to complete their medical degree on the Northwest Arkansas Campus in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Three-Year M.D. or Four-Year M.D. Track
The UAMS College of Medicine offers two tracks for earning an M.D. degree on the Fayetteville Campus. The three-year program is for highly qualified medical students dedicated to entering careers in Pediatrics, Internal Medicine or Family Medicine and begins with clinical training on day one. Students in the traditional four-year track benefit from close mentorship throughout their training and successfully match into the full range of medThree-Year Program
Outstanding Match Rates
We take great pride in training the next generation of exceptional physicians and are particularly proud of how consistently our medical students match into very competitive specialty programs.
The community and lifestyle in Northwest Arkansas are compelling and are attracting significant growth in this region. Fayetteville is consistently in the top five listing of US News and World Report’s most livable cities in the United States. You will find that people are kind and considerate here. Traffic is nothing like other cities, and the cost of living is reasonable. Arkansas is known as the Natural State for good reason.Finding NWA
When the academic houses were first being named, medical students training in Northwest Arkansas selected a highly esteemed physician who had practiced here, Dr. Neil Compton, made famous for his role as a conservationist instrumental in preserving the Buffalo River as a national park for all to enjoy. Dr. Compton’s legacy lives on in the Compton Gardens.
Currently we have the following residency programs:
- Family Medicine Residency – 9 positions/year led by Dr. Michael Macechko, M.D.
- Internal Medicine Residency (Mercy) – 11 positions/year led by Dr. Sarah Assem, M.D., Associate Program Director.
- Internal Medicine Residency (Washington Regional) – 8 positions/year led by Dr. Sheena CarlLee, M.D., Program Director.
- Rural Training Residency Program (Family Medicine) – 2 positions/year led by Dr. Ronald Brimberry, M.D., Program Director.
- Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship – 2 positions/year led by Dr. Ramon Ylanan, M.D.
We have exciting plans on the horizon. We hope that if our mission resonates with you that our paths will cross at some point in the future.
