Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

It is all about the people. The staff and fellow residents at UNM area all amazing people in and out of work, and support each other like family. The facilities are also amazing! Having the opportunity to train at a large reference laboratory is something not all Pathology programs can offer.
