Matthew Mitchell

Matthew is our Stroke Program Director for Neurosciences. Matt will work closely with our physician leadership and core stroke team of physicians, providers, nurses and staff to build our program across multiple disciplines.

Matt completed his undergraduate education at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in 2008 and was licensed in nursing the same year.  He began his nursing career as a staff nurse on H8 Neurology/Neurosurgery unit.  After finishing graduate school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, he looked for ways to use his knowledge to improve patient care.  In 2015, he accepted a position as Nurse Manager at Baptist Health in a Neurology/Neurosurgery Unit where he led his unit to achieve high marks in stroke core measures and increased patient satisfaction scores.

Matt has come back to UAMS to lead us in achieving our goals for Comprehensive Stroke Certification and to improve the health, outcomes, and education for our neurovascular patients and their families.
