There is a greater need for more health care professionals for the aging and underserved population in Arkansas. UAMS-NW is not a “second medical school” for the state of Arkansas. It will not be a duplication of services or programs; rather, it is an expansion of the state’s health education system and is the most economical way for Arkansas to educate, train and graduate more health professionals.

This factsheet includes information on the UAMS Northwest Medical School, including the programs offered, the impact of the school in its area, how the school operates, and its administration.
