MedPro International is placing foreign-educated healthcare professionals in exciting positions throughout the United States. This week we feature Little Rock, the capital of Arkansas.


Big on Little Rock

The city’s slogan, “Big on Little Rock,” rings true for those who live, work, and play here. Centrally located in the state and situated next to the Arkansas River, Little Rock boasts a bustling downtown, relatively mild climate, low cost of living, and a growing economy. The city’s top industries of healthcare, distribution and logistics, and financial services and technologies, make this area rich in resources and talent.

Residents and visitors can enjoy downtown Little Rock’s museums, art galleries, theaters, cultural centers, and parks. The overall cost of living here is below the national average. Plus, from loft apartments and condos downtown to single-family homes in surrounding suburbs such as Hillcrest, Little Rock offers a variety of housing to suit all tastes, needs, and budgets. The Little Rock School District provides early childhood (pre-kindergarten) through high school education and career-technical and adult education learning centers. And no destination is too far, with Clinton National Airport offering non-stop flights to cities across the United States.
