Click a video from the playlist above to hear AMS physician leaders tell why membership is important to them.
We went to medical school,
continued our training through residency,
and spent countless hours in preparation.
All to become physicians.
All to help our patients.
The Arkansas Medical Society was created by our predecessors to help ease the burden, to increase our reach as individuals, to look out for our interests … to make us better physicians. Take the next step in becoming the best physician for your patients; join me in the Arkansas Medical Society today.
