Family Medicine is an all encompassing profession. I felt that UAMS West provided the best opportunity for my education by aggressively advancing my training across multiple fields. Working with many physicians and specialtist allows me to grow not only professionally, but develop healthy business relationships in the community. Also, I enjoy the multifaceted aspect of women’s health, and the OB track offered with this program was key in my selection process. On a separate note, I enjoy that most of our faculty trained at our program and are still here!
