Our Current Residents 

UNM family medicine residents are the future of community and population health care.

Meet our current cohorts of residents:

During medical school, I completed an MPH to learn more about how to address these structural and social determinants of health.  I love that Family Medicine is uniquely situated at the intersection of individual, community and population health. I chose UNM because I knew I would receive full-scope, community-focused training in all of these realms all while being surrounded by inspiring individuals committed to advancing health equity.

Resident Life

As a UNM resident, there's no doubt you will work hard. And you'll also have opportunities to have fun and integrate into a vibrant community.

You are about to enter an exciting world, where the responsibility of being a newly trained physician and the stress of extended work hours are counterbalanced by an approachable and supportive network of individuals who are committed to collegiality, diversity and who are in support of individual and family well-being.

Resident cohorts are tight knit. We have an orientation block the first month of residency, during which you will get to know and work closely with the residents from your continuity clinic site and residency class. Book club and potluck gatherings pop up throughout the year. Each resident class and their families have supported time to have a “weekend away” class retreat.

Residents also lead their own activities—these have included camping trips, ski trips and even international travel as a cohort. There are many opportunities for get-togethers and family outings within the department. 

Joy in Practice

We dedicate time to addressing topics of health and stress. Wednesday Wellness is a time set aside for each class to participate in a stress-releasing group activity such as hiking or fieldtrips to the Gravity Park trampoline site.

In addition to wellness programming, we offer all residents a range of benefits, including paid time off, counseling services and insurance options.

Live in the Land of Enchantment

At UNM, you’ll only be bored if you want to be. Albuquerque boasts an average of 310 days of sunshine a year and low humidity—you can participate in nearly any outdoor activity imaginable.

Santa Fe, Taos, Angel Fire, Carlsbad Caverns, Ojo Caliente, White Sands, Ghost Ranch—the list of day and weekend trips, spas, camping/hiking, art, skiing, foodie destinations and spots to see our glorious sunsets across the unique state of New Mexico is simply endless.
