Where did Arkansas get its name?

The word “Arkansas” was derived by French explorers from the Native American name for the tribe now known as Quapaw (or Arkansaw). They called them “Ugakhpah” which means “the people who live downstream.” After the pronunciation was slightly changed (or mispronounced) by the French explorers, the spelling and pronunciation has evolved to become “Arkansas.”

As the only accredited rural training program in Arkansas, our program offers a unique experience. We are looking for applicants who truly want to make a difference in our community and embrace the “small town� feel. An unopposed program with a total of nine family medicine residents, we believe our small size lends itself to more one-on-one interaction with faculty and hands-on learning experiences for our residents. Our community partner hospital, Magnolia Regional Medical Center, a 49-bed acute care facility, is the only hospital within a 45 mile radius of our program. While we are a rural program, we ensure that our residents gain experience with larger hospitals through rotations in Texarkana, El Dorado and Little Rock. Our residents receive a well-rounded education in primary care, acute care, OB, population health and chronic conditions. We hope you will consider Magnolia, with its beautiful scenery, diverse population and close-knit neighborhoods. Our team looks forward to meeting you!
