Clinical Practice

Commitment to Practice Innovation

The College of Pharmacy is dedicated to improving the health of the people in New Mexico and advancing the practice of pharmacy through innovation in clinical practice, advocacy and community outreach.

Our clinical faculty members provide pharmacy services in a diverse array of practice settings. They improve the health of patients and of our communities by optimizing drug therapy, improving adherence to medications, enhancing medication safety, providing health education, administering vaccinations, providing health screenings, and serving as vital members of interprofessional health care teams.

Throughout the history of the College of Pharmacy, our faculty has continually forged new roles for pharmacists and new models of care that not only improve the health of our communities, but also serve as practice laboratories to prepare our students to be the next generation of pharmacist providers.

Acknowledging the importance of appropriate medication management in patients with chronic conditions, the College of Pharmacy has expanded its presence in primary care and specialty clinics across the UNM Health Sciences Center and throughout New Mexico, using innovative technologies and new clinical programs that include:

  • Medication Therapy Management
  • Patient-Centered Medical Homes
