Little Rock

uamsIf you’re considering a move to Arkansas, you’ll be glad to learn that UAMS offers the opportunity to be mentored by national leaders in health care in a location that offers residents great quality of life.

Whether you like beautiful scenery, museums and cultural events, parks, gourmet dining or the night life, Little Rock has it all. And you can forget about the traffic congestion and long commutes to work that interfere with your well-being in many cities. Also, Little Rock offers affordable housing in lovely neighborhoods and low cost of living.

It’s no accident that Arkansas is called “The Natural State.” Living in Little Rock, we are surrounded by natural beauty at every turn and enjoy a four-season climate. Resorts and state and national parks are all within easy driving distance to enjoy on the weekends too. We have something for everyone from waterfalls and caverns to mountain trails and scenic drives, as well as lakes and fall foliage that will take your breath away. We also have fascinating historical sites and spectacular golf courses. And did we mention that we have a wine country, the only public diamond mine in the world, thoroughbred horse racing and one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world?

Although we believe it’s one of the best kept secrets in the country, we like to welcome new residents and believe we offer the best combination of opportunities and high quality of life.
