The UAMS Northwest campus is community-based regional medical campus, and a satellite campus of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.[1] It is located in the former 325,000-square-foot (30,200 m2) Washington Regional Medical Center near the VA Hospital in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and is opening in phases, which started in 2009 as part of the nearly $500 million expansion of the UAMS campus in Little Rock.[2][3] A $3 million phase one renovation was completed in 2009 which provided new classroom, student, and office space and allowed the first group of medical students to attend UAMS Northwest that fall.[2] Phase two of the expansion, undertaken in 2011, added students from the colleges of pharmacy, nursing and health professions.[2][4]
