Major Teaching Hospital and only Level-1 Trauma Center

The University of New Mexico Hospital and the VA Medical Center are the largest teaching hospitals in the state and serve as referral centers for a geographic area that extends into neighboring states. Add to that, UNM is a county hosptial and Level 1 Trauma Center, and you get unparalelled clinical diversity under the umbrella of an outstanding academic institution committed to under-served communities.  

Sandoval Regional Medical Center (Bernalillo, NM), Taos Holy Cross Hospital,  Lovelace Hospital (Albuquerque), First Choice Community Clinics (Albuquerque), San Juan Regional Medical Center (Farmington, NM), and Gerald Champion Medical Center (Alamogordo, NM) provide additional sites for resident rotations and clinics. These affiliated hopsitals and clinics provide a spectrum of hospital medicine and primary care and a diverse patient population.

Why UNM? The people. Nowhere else did I find such wholehearted enthusiasm for the program from the residents, and having been here, it's even better than I had imagined. I can't think of another group of people who are more enjoyable to work with and passionate about patient care.
