Molly GathrightWelcome to UAMS Health and UAMS College of Medicine, Graduate Medical Education!

We are an innovative community committed to improving the health and health care of Arkansans. As the home of the state’s only academic health sciences center, our research and educational programs inspire new knowledge that results in better diagnosis and more advanced patient care.

Critical to the success of UAMS Health is the UAMS College of Medicine, Graduate Medical Education (GME) enterprise. With over 650 residents and fellows representing over 60 specialties, our primary mission is supporting the training of the next generation of excellent physicians.

UAMS GME strives to provide high-quality, leading examples in medical education; develop faculty to effectively lead and manage GME programs; and oversee the working alliance between GME programs and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Our core values are accomplished by providing service in active partnership with GME program directors and program coordinators by promoting a climate of mutual respect, accuracy, consistency, and responsiveness. We encourage a culture of excellence in program development by consistently meeting accreditation essentials and offering frequent opportunities for programs to exceed beyond them. Promotion of patient safety and resident well-being in a supportive educational environment is also central to our values. By challenging ourselves to meet our residents’ and fellows’ expectations for high quality learning experiences, we provide the necessary foundation to maximize career potential and prepare skilled, compassionate physicians and medical leaders of the future.

If you are a prospective resident or fellow, or have already trusted us with your training, please use this site to learn more about our organization, programs, and commitment to excellence in health care and education. As the Office for GME, we are here to support you, and most importantly, the patients we serve through our outstanding training programs, faculty, and clinical learning environments.

Serving as your Associate Dean for GME and Designated Institutional Official is a privilege that provides inspiration and is what keeps me invigorated and consistently striving for excellence.
