Faculty members in an eligible class who are at least 62 years old and meet the program’s requirements may participate in the Phased Retirement Program. Participants are able to reduce their workload with continued participation in medical, dental and other UAMS-sponsored benefits available to full-time faculty.
To participate in this program, the faculty member must agree to reduce their workload to 50-80 percent for a period of 12-36 months (“phased retirement period”). At the end of the phased retirement period, the participant must separate (retire) from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

Application should be started at least 60 days prior to the phased retirement start date. A completed application must be submitted to Campus Faculty Center at least 30 days prior to the start of the program who shall then submit this completed agreement to UAMS Human Resources for processing. Confirmation of acceptance in this program will be sent by UAMS Faculty Center to the faculty member, department chair, and dean of school.
