School of Medicine: Office of Education

On behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to the School of Medicine Office of Education. The Office of Education was created in the School of Medicine in 2012. The office brings together and represents the many diverse educational programs in the School of Medicine that cover the continuum of education from beginning learners in a discipline all the way through practicing providers, and provides a central administrative structure for leadership, advocacy, and support for educational programs.

Serving New Mexico Communities

The Mission, Vision, and Values statements for the Office of Education were updated in 2019 to reflect growth and changes in our programs, as well as to re-emphasize our goals and values. Consistent with our commitment to inclusiveness and teamwork, these statements were created by an Office of Education working group consisting of both faculty and staff, who represented and sought input from the entire Office of Education team. The Mission, Vision, and Values statements are as follows:
