The UAMS MD/PhD program established a local chapter of the American Physician Scientist Association (APSA) in 2017.

The mission of UAMS APSA is to support the cultivation of physician-scientists by promoting career development of research and clinical interests, establish networking among both students and professionals on local and national levels, and augment training in skills essential to a physician scientist.

Each month, the UAMS APSA hosts a lunch with a local physician scientist to foster career development and share career wisdom with aspiring physician scientists.

To attend this luncheon as a guest or a speaker, please contact the current APSA president for more details.
