UAMS Friends and Alumni

Student Life


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 we undertake.

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
