Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Amanda Sale Joins St. Bernards Clopton Clinic

Aug 12, 2022

St. Bernards Healthcare announced that Internal Medicine Specialist Amanda Sale, M.D. has joined the St. Bernards Clopton Clinic medical team. Dr. Sale stays with St. Bernards after graduating this summer from the organization’s Internal Medicine Residency Program (IMRP).

A native of Piggott, Dr. Sale obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Arkansas State University. She then completed a Master’s of Business Administration in Healthcare Management before earning her Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) in 2019 from American University of Integrative Sciences in Barbados. She now joins a team of more than 20 multi-specialty healthcare providers started by the late Dr. Owen Clopton nearly 60 years ago.

“As part of St. Bernards Internal Medicine Residency team, I had the privilege of practicing inside the Clopton Clinic building for three years,” Dr. Sale said. “The physicians here have served Northeast Arkansas for years, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue helping patients alongside them.”

Dr. Sale’s arrival will only strengthen the care options at St. Bernards Clopton Clinic, said Ben Owens, Jr., M.D., Internal Medicine Specialist.

“Access to care remains a critical component of what we do,” Dr. Owens said. “Dr. Sale is from this region. She knows St. Bernards, and she understands the specific challenges our patients face. She could have practiced anywhere, and we’re honored she chose to stay here.”

Dr. Sale holds certifications in Fundamental Critical Care Support, Critical Care Ultrasound and Basic Life Support (BLS)/Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) as well as a professional membership with the American College of Physicians. She lives in Jonesboro with her husband, Trae.
