feedback about Uams Medical Center
This med school is AMAZING! They have an excellent reputation for graduating students with excellent skills in patient care and have nearly 100% placement in residency. Those who do not place are personal reasons, such as wanting one particular location. My daughter is in her 3rd year and has loved every minute of it! The education staff take great care to make sure students have access to emotional support and peer activities. I am a member of the UAMS College of Medicine Parents Club, which allows me to provide additional support. We provide fun activities to give students a short break, scholarships, financial support, and supplies to help their education experience. I love how the deans refer to the students as their children. They truly care about their students and love what they do. They even provide financial guidance, such as how to budget, invest, and manage their loans! UAMS does not just build medical professionals, they build medical leaders.
I’m a 16 year old that just had surgery to do with my cancer I was put in the ICU for one night and the nurses were all nice but the staff were very rude towards my family. And when I got released out of the ICU in the morning it was night time and I still wasn’t in a room and they completely forgot about me and didn’t bring me diner and they were trying to kick my brother out of the waiting area cause he was under 18 we finally got moved into a regular room later on that night. They were very rude towards family.
The billing department and the clinics do not communicate. Pay Attention people! They will bill you and never have billed the insurance companies first. The clinic personnel will make copies of your insurance cards, but never enter the information. They are not willing to help sort the bill out. Please be educated and ready to fight a battle when it comes to your bills.
I can't speak to the entire facility, but I am a patient of Dr. Caris T. Fitzgerald and she is one of the finest and most caring physicians i have had. She takes the time to explain what she thinks and why she thinks it. Extremely courteous and receptive to courtesy, she does not rush patients or act like she has more important things to do. Physicians are busy, no question, but you'll never know it at Dr. Fitzgerald's clinic!
Do NOT attend this school as a graduate student!!!!!!: please read to learn more. UAMS in Little Rock IS one of the worst graduate schools in the country, and possibly in the developed world. If you don't believe me, just check any reputable college ranking system that you please. The teaching staff is terrible, job placement is abysmal, publication record is atrocious, and the overall experience is just miserable. Do not attend this school. Do not. If you are thinking about going to this school (or if this is the only graduate school that actually accepted you) do not go! Multiple classmates of mine wasted countless years at this place, were treated horribly, and came out without PhD degrees or any employment-place-able degrees. This university is nothing more than a government boondoggle that is paid for by the tobacco taxes from the state of Arkansas. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! The teaching staff is a miserable coterie of slippery-slope failures. AVOID THIS GRADUATE SCHOOL AT ALL COSTS!!!! I am not sure how the medical or pharmacy schools are, or the Master's programs, but the research graduate programs (PhD programs in biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, etc..) are complete toilets. GO TO A REAL SCHOOL!!!!! Do not attend this garbage factory. GO TO A REAL SCHOOL!!!!! That is what I wish someone told me when I just got out of undergraduate! This place is a complete waste of time for anyone looking for a legitimate research career...or any career for that matter. I left this school, attended a better institution, and now have an actual life and career. Do not waste your time with these losers. And if you are there now: run. Run away. Run now. Why are you still reading this? Run now! Run away from the school! I know that you want to go to a real school, go now! Go to Duke! Or Tulane! Leave UAMS! Leave now! Freeedom!
