Advanced Training and Fellowship Programs  

Blend your passion and residency experience to become an expert in your field. Complete a post-residency training with a fellowship in the Department of Family and Community Medicine. We offer four subspecialties, with each offered on a competitive basis.

Addiction Medicine

The addiction medicine fellowship was created in 2019 to address the need for clinicians in this field. Fellows serve patients ranging in age from newborns to geriatric patients, while learning to blend compassion with professionalism.


The one-year clinical fellowship in geriatric medicine is offered through the Division of Geriatrics in the Department of Internal Medicine. Fellows will complete rotations in hospice, primary care and geriatric subspecialties.

Maternal Child Health (MCH)

This two-year maternal and child health fellowship was initiated in 2003 to train leaders in family medicine for rural or academic practice settings. The fellowship is offered in collaboration with UNM OB/GYN and Pediatrics Departments and includes advanced clinical training in maternity and newborn care.

Sports Medicine

The sports medicine fellowship is limited to two fellows per year, selected on a competitive basis. This fellowship is open to physicians who are currently enrolled in or have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited residency in family medicine.
