Health Sciences Lecture Series for Students

The UAMS College of Medicine "adopted" a local science magnet high school (Parkview Arts and Science Magnet High School) about 15 years ago providing the high school students with tours of the medical sciences campus, some shadowing opportunities, and UAMS faculty participation in PVHS career day. The PIHS program expanded this commitment by adding a monthly science night for students and their parents during the school year. A presentation is made by a UAMS faculty member at the high school. Each presenter introduces himself/herself beginning with when he/she was in high school. This allows the students to appreciate the academic career choices/decisions made by the presenter. Presenters have held a variety of degrees: M.D., Ph.D., M.S.W., R.N., R.T., L.D. and M.S. Below is a listing of the different topics presented from 1995 through 2002.
