Alumni & Giving

Office of Advancement & Alumni Relations

Your Resource for Unity and Continued Connection to the UNM School of Medicine

The Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations cultivates and nurtures enduring relationships, connecting our learners, faculty, alumni, community partners and advocates with the UNM School of Medicine and each other. 

The UNM School of Medicine advances the health of all New Mexicans through the delivery of high quality, compassionate health care, the tireless pursuit of expanded knowledge and understanding of the human condition and disease sates and the unwaivering committment to excellence of practice.

We engage our community and the relationships we sustain in the important work of supporting this mission.

Supporting UNM School of Medicine learners, departments, programs and initiatives advances the health of all New Mexicans.

Our office partners with you to ensure your gifts to the School of Medicine have meaning and serve your passions.

As valued members of our community, our donors are recognized and informed regularly on the impact their gifts have made.

Every gift and every donor is critically needed and deeply appreciated. Whether your give money, resources or time, we celebrate and thank you!


Our alumni community is vast and includes graduates of all of our educational programs - from medical school, health professional and research education and training to residency and fellowship programs.

We empower our alumni to stay connected with one another and UNM by providing a wide array of activities and channels including annual reunions, class gatherings, publication spotlights, giving campaigns and rewarding opportunities to train and mentor future health care providers and professionals.

Alumni engagement at the UNM School of Medicine is not just about celebrating the past, it's also about creating a brighter future for New Mexico and beyond.

Many of our current and former faculty and staff enhance and enrich their personal connections to the School of Medicine through their continued support of scholarships and other student-focused initiatives.

Their enduring generosity is just one element of the extraordinary dedication our colleagues have for our learners.

We provide UNM School of Medicine students with financial support, information and, yes, even free coffee and snacks to help sustain them during the rigors of their education and training.

From the first moment our learners enter the doors of the Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations, they begin building rapport and relationships that last a lifetime.

Our students connect with alumni and donors throughout the course of their education through their participation at School of Medicine events and the sharing of their stories with our communities.

We are community builders.

Our alumni and donors are offered many opprtunities to come together with one another and with our students, faculty and staff at local and national events throughout the year.

Our donors' generosity is transformed into tangible benefits to our communities by providing today's learners the critically needed financial support to deliver tomorrow's doctors, health professionals and scientists.

Our greater communities are also served and engaged through highly attended free educational events such as the UNM School of Medicine's bi-annual Community Lecture Series.
