Connective Tissue Clinic Education
All of the physicians in the Multidisciplinary Connective Tissue Clinic at Arkansas Children's Hospital hold faculty appointments in the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) College of Medicine, Arkansas' only medical school. Arkansas Children's Hospital is a teaching hospital, serving to train UAMS medical students, residents, and fellows training in the care of children and adolescents with medical conditions. The faculty in the Connective Tissue Clinic have won numerous teaching awards and take great pride in training the doctors of tomorrow.
The Multidisciplinary Connective Tissue Clinic at Arkansas Children's Hospital aims to improve the complex care of patients with connective tissue diseases by training tomorrow's doctors to be able to diagnose, treat, and manage these patients. This teaching mission will allow the Connective Tissue Clinic to improve the care of patients with connective tissue diseases wherever our trainees may eventually practice medicine.
