Physician Residency Program
Conway Regional Health System provides complete health care services to a seven-county service area of North Central Arkansas including Cleburne, Conway, Faulkner, Perry, Pope, Van Buren, and Yell Counties. Centered on a 150-bed, acute care medical center, the health system provides patients with a variety of services including heart health, orthopedic care, neuro-spine surgery, vascular surgery, gastroenterology services, women’s health, surgery, and rehabilitation. In addition, Conway Regional operates an expansive physician enterprise, including both primary care clinics and specialty care clinics.
With more than 225 physicians on the active and consulting medical staff, 1,600+ employees and about 100 volunteers, Conway Regional is committed to making better health care a reality. Conway Regional maintains an employee engagement score in the top 20% of hospitals throughout the country and a medical staff engagement score in the top 5%, as compared to hospitals of similar size and scope.
Conway Regional is the only hospital in Arkansas named Modern Healthcare’s National Best Places to Work in 2018, and then received the honor again in 2019 and 2020. Conway Regional has been named an Arkansas Best Place to Work in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Throughout training, our residents will receive ample opportunities to refine their communication skills, apply evidence-based medical practice to improve clinical outcomes, and develop habits conducive to practicing life-long learning and improvement in the field of medicine. Mentorship and collaboration will be a critical component of this program, and physicians will learn to practice as effective members of the healthcare system through multi-disciplinary, team-based care within the inpatient and ambulatory settings.
Overall, we hope to instill with these physicians a passion for making lives better and foster a patient-centered approach for all graduates as they continue onto independent medical practice.
