Supporting students who have a passion for medicine is one of our most important endeavors.
Student Ambassador Program
Each year over 60 students volunteer as Student
Ambassadors for the Alumni Association. Their hours are valuable in
assisting with campus tours, alumni weekend, events and other activities
Day with a Doctor
Our successful and popular mentoring program, Day With A
Doctor, matches a freshman medical student with a practicing physician
for a day of experience in the specialty of the student's choice. The
students love this program as it provides the lift they need to get
through that tough second semester of their freshman year.
"The Day with a Doctor program was a truly valuable
experience. It was way more fun than any lecture, and really gave me a
boost of enthusiasm to finish the year strong." ~Adrienne Hatchett, UAMS-COM '16
Every fall and spring, the Alumni
Association enjoys surprising the freshman and sophomore classes with fun-filled
treat bags outside their classrooms.
Just prior to graduation, senior medical students are presented a leather padfolio embossed with the class year as a memento of their medical school education.
Presented to the graduating medical student chosen by
vote of the class, this award is presented at graduation to a senior who
best fulfills the ideals of humanitarian public service as demonstrated
by superior awareness of and achievement in civic and community
