As a critical part of its mission, UAMS trains people to fulfill roles in Arkansas’ healthcare workforce. The Arkansas Health Workforce Strategic Plan: A Roadmap to Change cited Arkansas’ aging population, increased disease burden, and more insured citizens, as important factors that are impacting the state’s workforce needs in healthcare. The increased clinical workforce needs go hand in hand with increased healthcare administrative management workforce needs.
