Take undergraduate courses. Conduct cutting-edge biomedical research alongside a faculty mentor. Or pursue a biomedical sciences graduate degree focused on infectious disease and immunology.

At the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology (MGM), we are committed to delivering the best education for medical students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Undergraduate Education

Our department plays an important role in Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) at UNM School of Medicine. MGM coordinates the the Microbiology and Immunology block for Phase I of the UME curriculum.

MGM faculty give most lectures in this course, serve as tutors during problem-based learning sessions and facilitate team-based learning.

Graduate Education

MGM faculty participate in all aspects of the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (BSGP), including as faculty mentors, participants in the BSGP curriculum and members of the BSGP steering committee. 

Other Education Options

MGM faculty often serve as leaders or lecturers in other UNM departments and centers. Take a look at where our team provides expertise:
