Practice & Community

Our students, faculty and preceptors are problem solvers, empowered to take patient care to a higher level. And to demonstrate to those who rely on us that health is precious and deserves to be protected.

We take pride in our clinical practices. In our community relationships. In our diverse and unique state. Our relationships and practices fuel us to care for New Mexico’s rural and underserved populations. Providing high-quality health care to all.
