The Office for Community Faculty is a one stop shop for our generous and highly regarded community faculty to connect with learners in all of the UNM School of Medicine's disciplines.

This allows faculty to provide the highest quality community-based education by sharing their knowledge, experiences, skills and abilities with our students in a wide variety of practice environments throughout the state. As teachers and health care professionals, our community faculty play an important role in providing the best health care possible for all New Mexicans.
