Pediatric Training at its Best

The UAMS Pediatric Training Program is a fully accredited, medium-sized, general pediatrics training program located in a free-standing building at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. We provide a solid foundation in general pediatrics with clinical experiences in all pediatric subspecialties, preparing our residents to enter any area of pediatrics.

Our residents have the best pediatric training thanks to our wonderful and complete patient population, dedicated and innovative faculty who place our resident’s training as a top priority, and fellow residents willing to support the learning of their colleagues.

Whether it is at the bedside, in a conference room, or in our fully functional simulation center, we are constantly learning and teaching each other for the betterment of our patients, our state, and ourselves.

A Great Place to Live

Little Rock really is a great place to live!  In the September 2013 issue of Kiplinger's magazine, Little Rock has been rated as the top midsize city in the U.S.  What makes Little Rock such as great place to live (and work)?  According to Kiplinger's definition, you need good jobs, reasonably priced homes, decent schools, great health care and a manageable size.  Little Rock certainly has all those things and much more!   

We hope that you will check out our Guide to Little Rock to learn more about why our residents love living, working and playing in Little Rock!

Quotes from our Residents, Alumni & Attendings

“After 5 years in private practice in Pine Bluff, I moved to Michigan and became a pediatric hospitalist. I was pleased to find that my training at ACH was as good as or better than what my Michigan colleagues had received. The experience gave me a deep appreciation for the privilege to train at ACH.”
