Unmatched Neurological Clinical Care

Clinical Care in Neurology

Our beautiful campus in Albuquerque is home to the Clinical Neurosciences Center at UNM Hospital—the state’s only Level I Trauma Center. The hospital houses the Stroke Clinic, Neurology Unit and Neuroscience ICU, among other specialty clinics.

Neurology residents gain experience working with leading-edge technology and a multicultural patient population. You will develop close ties with patients and families as you monitor their diagnoses, treatments and progress with continuity and care.

High Quality Stroke Care

To save brain at risk of stroke, we know that the faster and more completely we can open a blocked vessel, the better for the patient. For that reason, some of the most important metrics we follow to ensure we are providing the best possible care are 1) the speed of moving through the steps between admission and opening the vessel and 2) our success at getting complete or near-complete opening of the vessel. This is graded on a scale (Thrombolyses in Cerebral Infarction=TICI) ranging from TICI 0 to 3, with 2b and 3 considered near complete or complete reperfusion.
