What to Expect at Your Appointment
UAMS has safety measures in place to protect our patients and employees. Everyone who comes to UAMS is required to wear a mask and pass a health screening before entering the building.

Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Patients must come to their visit alone. A friend or family member may come to an appointment only if the patient is under 18 or is not mentally or physically able to go to the appointment alone. You are welcome to include a friend or family member in your appointment by phone or video chat.
If you need a wheelchair from your car to your appointment, transport staff is available. Contact your clinic and they will help to arrange this for you.

About Behavioral Medicine Clinic
Coping with cancer or other serious illnesses can be highly challenging. The UAMS Behavioral Medicine Clinic offers clinical care for patients and family members dealing with difficult life changes. We provide support and help you learn ways to enhance your quality of life and wellness, improve coping, and manage symptoms.
Our Behavioral Medicine Clinic provides services to improve quality of life and symptom control for patients coping with cancer and other chronic medical conditions. In addition, we also offer treatment or consultation for psychological difficulties such as depression, anxiety, OCD, stress, trauma, grief, substance abuse, and family problems. Services are available from our doctoral-level clinicians.
- Coping with illness and reducing stress: The Clinic offers individualized assistance in adapting to the demands of illness and navigating one’s way through the complexities of treatment.
- Consultation and treatment for psychological difficulties: Clinical psychologists provide evaluation and therapy for problems commonly associated with illness, such as clinical depression, anxiety, caregiver strain, and family concerns.
- Improving quality-of-life and managing symptoms: We’d like you to have the best possible day-to-day quality of life. In addition, more specialized self-management strategies are available to assist with pain, nausea, fatigue, hot flashes, or other treatment toxicities
- Mind-body strategies: The Clinic offers assistance in relaxation, meditation, biofeedback, and other mind-body approaches.
- Enhancing the quality of survivorship. After active medical treatment has ended, we can help with the unexpected challenges of “getting back to life” and finding a new equilibrium. Ideally, survivorship means “growing and thriving” instead of merely “surviving.”
- Palliative Care: The Clinic provides support regarding symptom control, difficult decision-making, and end-of-life care. We can assist with existential and spiritual concerns.
