Health Sciences Policy Office

Welcome to the UNM Health Sciences Policy Office.

Health sciences policies apply to all health sciences faculty and staff, regardless of your department, unity, clinic, college or facility affiliation. Each department may have additional guidelines; please contact designated point persons, listed below, for specific information.

The Policy Alignment Workgroup (PAW) supports a system approach to policy alignment and integration. We welcome all suggestions, questions or concerns. Contact the Health Sciences Policy Manager, Gail Hammer, at for more information.
