“When I moved to Little Rock, my first impression was of trees, hills, water in a beautiful city that had a big town atmosphere. Less traffic, warm people and a very affordable cost of living is still true 27 years later.”

Preparing for your Pediatric Board Exams
Another goal of a pediatric residency training program is to prepare residents for passing their pediatric certification exam taken after the completion of training. While here at UAMS, you will be provided with multiple tools to assist you in preparing for the Pediatric Boards.
Interns are provided with MedStudy® books. The MedStudy® Corporation creates excellent board exam preparation products that provide residents with high-yield content and easy-to-read formats. UAMS residents are encouraged to read through the MedStudy® books as they proceed through residency and again prior to taking their certification exams.
All residents receive monthly issues of Pediatrics In Review, yearly subscription of PREP study materials, and access to the Pedialink site all through your AAP membership. Starting in your intern year and continuing throughout, you will receive board preparation questions via email using PREP's on-line modules.
You will also be invited to attend the yearly Board Review Lecture Series (provided Monday-Friday in May-June) that is specifically focused on continuing to prepare upper level residents for board certification.
The Housestaff program is always looking for ways to help all residents succeed in all phases of residency—not just boards. Our overall goal is your professional, educational and clinical success.
