The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences – Northwest (UAMS-NW) Community Internal Medicine Residency Program is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas and was established in 2015 as a new fully-accredited community-based program within the Department of Internal Medicine in the UAMS College of Medicine. Our program will begin with eight (8) residents each year and grow to a full complement of 24 residents by the 2018-2019 academic year. We are a categorical three-year internal medicine residency program, leading graduates to certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
