Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

I enjoyed my interview day and appreciated the passion for pathology! Moving to a new state was very overwhelming, but I felt very welcome and supported from the start of my residency. The residents are an amazing group of people, and the culture of support and wellness creates a great environment to work in. I'm also surprisingly in love with living in the desert.
