Eventually, the internal medicine residency program will support 24 total residents who will serve in five hospital systems across the region.

Some of the grant money, will be used to create a sports medicine fellowship at UAMS Northwest, giving physicians specialized training in physical fitness, treatment and prevention of injuries.

"UAMS Northwest has been fortunate since its inception to have a broad base of support from the region's leaders in health care, government and the business community," UAMS Chancellor Dr. Dan Rahn said in a news release.

UAMS established the northwest campaus in 2007. Early this year, enrollment reached an all-time high of 185 students and resident physicians in medicine, nursing, pharmacy and the allied health professions.
