About Us

Founded in 2021 by philanthropist Alice Walton, the School of Medicine will offer a four-year, medical degree-granting program that builds on foundational sciences and clinical practices with a compassionate, inclusive, and whole-person approach to care. The program teaches students to support a person’s mental, physical, social, and emotional health and promote resilience, prevent disease, and restore well-being.

I believe we have a huge opportunity to be a catalyst for change, with Northwest Arkansas at the epicenter of a grassroots whole health movement.

The School of Medicine will help students rise to the health challenges of the 21st century. It’s a reimagination of American medical education that will incorporate whole health principles — combining conventional medicine with integrative techniques — to help people live healthier and happier lives."— Alice Walton, Founder
