The residents are exposed to a variety of cases referred from all over the state. In addition, the residents are given increasing autonomy as they move up their ranking. The monthly video rounds of challenging movement experience I received at UAMS. The residents who enter this program will be well prepared for whatever career path they decide to choose.”disorders cases and neurophysiology lecture series was a unique experience. The program provides immense support to attend national conferences to present your research. I felt more than prepared to start my fellowship based on the clinical training and research
