Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

The pathology program at UNM is comprehensive with immense learning and research opportunities. The sincere dedication of the residents and faculty to medical education in a friendly environment drew me to UNM. Albuquerque is a beautiful place to live and my favorite aspects are the endless sunshine, commuting by bike, and serving the people of New Mexico while learning and growing with my wonderful colleagues.
