The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences North Central (UAMS North Central) is an outreach of the University of Arkansas for Medical Science (UAMS), serving Marion, Baxter, Fulton, Sharp, Searcy, Van Buren, Stone, Cleburne, Izard, Independence, and White counties. UAMS North Central has been a part of the statewide UAMS Regional Campuses since 2007, provides clinical care, health education services, and training for medical residents in primary care. The UAMS North Central mission is to improve the health of Arkansans by training health professionals and delivering patient-centered care in an eleven county area of north-central Arkansas.

UAMS North Central opened the UAMS Family Medical Center in August 2018. The Family Medical Center has 24 exam rooms and multiple areas for team-based care, which includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other clinical professionals. The UAMS Family Medicine Residency Program in Batesville plans to receive our first residents in July 2019. The program will admit six residents per year until reaching a total of 18 residents in 2021.

UAMS North Central was established by the Arkansas legislature in cooperation with UAMS in 2007. The center works in partnership with the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville and Arkansas State University at Mountain Home. Each college continues to house several UAMS degree programs. In addition to its partnership with the local colleges, UAMS North Central works closely with the White River Medical Center in Batesville.
