Education and Community


Beginning in phase 1 of the UNM School of Medicine MD program, faculty teach and train medical students. Faculty also contribute to innovative curriculum development in the pediatrics clerkship and residency.

Division members often speak to community groups and the media also to teach the public about child well-being. They also volunteer with New Mexico nonprofits that serve local families and children.



Members of the division regularly work with state and academic organizations on important research and present their findings at national scientific meetings.
