Emergency Medicine Residency

Welcome to UNM! Although we are living in difficult times, we are excited to meet you all and hoping to make this recruitment season better than ever. We especially miss our away rotators and the opportunity to show folks a program and state that we are proud of. So we will do our best virtually. You can sign our guest list, request a residency ambassador contact you, or just say hello.

Why UNM?

Our unique patient mix is a cornerstone of our program - a result of our history as the Bernalillo County Indian Hospital, the county hospital, and our current status as the state's academic referral center, only Level 1 trauma center, and safety net hospital. Community engagement and critical care were founding precepts of our program, and we now have the largest cohort of dual-EM-trained intensivists in the country. We have strong roots in EMS with deep expertise in rural and tribal, air medical, and tactical pre-hospital care, as well as a EMS Consortium Physician Field Response program. Our faculty are national experts in Wilderness, Austere, Disaster and International Emergency Medicine. And we are known nationally for our unique location and culture, an innovative simulation center, injury prevention research, and international medicine.
