"I really believe that attending EMT and paramedic school at UAMS was the key to my success.  The best faculty and state of the art equipment make UAMS the #1 choice.  I can honestly say that my patients have benefited from the strong educational background that I received from UAMS.  Thank you UAMS, you have helped make my dreams become reality."
                    - Robert Berryman


 "The UAMS paramedic program was a wonderful experience. I realized how much I learned the day I was alone in the back of an ambulance faced with the challenge of my first patient whose heart stopped beating. Being able to save a life and give a family a second chance with their loved one is the greatest gift to give. I am able to touch the life of each patient that I come in contact with and make a difference in the world. I have found my true calling in life. I urge anyone who has the desire to make a difference to attend this program."
                         - Barbara Davis
