Residents Steven James, MD Steven James, MD I grew up in Conway, Arkansas, (home of the Wampus Cats) with my awesome parents, four brothers and incredible wife, Kendra. Following high school, I completed my undergraduate degree in biology at the University of Arkansas, and attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.I was drawn to family medicine because it provides the unique opportunity to develop lifelong, meaningful relationships with patients. In addition, family medicine trains physicians to treat a wide variety of medical conditions in various practice settings, and I look forward to applying that training back home in Arkansas. I feel confident that there is no better group of people to train with than the wonderful people at CoxHealth Family Medicine Residency in the beautiful Ozarks!Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring the outdoors. I love fishing, hunting, camping and just about anything that gets me outside. On rainy or lazy days, I enjoy watching documentaries on Netflix, reading (listening to audio books), and last but certainly not least, listening to bluegrass music and playing the banjo!
