UAMS North Central Family Medicine Residency Program is a newly accredited program serving North Central Arkansas. We are located in the growing community of Batesville, Arkansas along the scenic White River in the beautiful Ozark Gateway Region.

Batesville, the oldest city in Arkansas, has plenty to offer with outdoor activities, arts, festivals, a bustling main street, excellent schools and a strong community feel. While Batesville may be a small town of 10,000, we have a thriving medical community where most specialties are represented. Due to our strong relationship with White River Medical Center (our 224-bed community hospital partner) and the support from our local physicians, we are able to host all required inpatient and outpatient rotations in Batesville.
