UAMS is the state’s go-to source for infectious diseases information, diagnosis and treatment.
The infectious diseases experts at UAMS provide telephone consultations to Arkansas practitioners. Those calls yield the rapid identification of a wide range of infectious conditions, helping doctors inform and treat patients in all corners of the state.
