Originally from Weiner, Arkansas, Sullins graduated from Lyon college and earned his medical degree in 2017 at UAMS. He completed a three-year residency in family medicine at UAMS Family Medical Center in Jonesboro.

With a passion for small communities and rural medicine, Sullins is excited to join the team at UAMS in Batesville, located at 1993 Harrison Street. The medical center provides clinical care and health education services as well as trains medical residents in primary care.

“As a husband and father of three, I’ve always loved the idea of taking care of entire families and helping patients manage their health through every stage of life,” said Sullins. “Joining the team at UAMS is a great opportunity to fulfill this goal while engaging in something else I have a passion for – education.”
