- COVID-19 Vaccination is a requirement for employment at UAMS and all of our partnering hospitals.
- “I acknowledge that UAMS mandates COVID-19 vaccination and requests for accommodation or exemption are available. Additionally, some required residency training experiences are only made available at partner facilities who may also mandate vaccination against COVID-19 as a condition for participating in their clinical environments. Requests for accommodation or exemption from such requirements may be available at partner facilities, but are solely at the discretion of those facilities and not UAMS. All UAMS residents and fellows are required to adhere to policies as outlined by UAMS and our partner sites as part of any ACGME-accredited residency training. Failure to adhere to such policies, including policies regarding vaccinations, may impact a resident’s ability to successfully complete a training program.”
