Bhavana Sharma, M.D.

I was born and raised in Delhi, India. I attended Bharati Vidyapeeth Medical College, Pune, India and then trained and worked as internal medicine doctor in Delhi for a couple of years before I moved to US with my family. I have lived in Little Rock since 2011. I like the city, weather is good, long summers and short winters much like Delhi. There is lot of outdoor stuff to do. People are nice, there are good elementary schools for my two daughters. Cost of living is low. All in all it is a nice place to raise a family. I like to spend my free time with my family. I also like to listening to soft Bollywood music. I volunteered at Harmony clinic in Little Rock for close to two years, the clinic serves the uninsured in central Arkansas. While volunteering there I came in contact with a lot of physicians and residents from UAMS and I also got information from my husband who was already working as a resident here. UAMS was an obvious choice for me. I like the work life balance UAMS and Little Rock has to offer. The UAMS neurology program is very academically oriented and provides excellent learning opportunities. When I graduate I plan to work in an academic setting.
