Residency Director's Message
Thank you for your interest in the Neurology Residency at The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.
Your choice of residency program will shape the rest of your career. As you enter into the residency application process, I encourage you to think about the type of environment that helps you succeed and to find a program that best matches your needs.
At UNM, you will find a residency that fosters a culture of inquiry, excellence and respect in a bustling university hospital in a unique Southwestern city.
We are committed to providing superb training through collaboration and teamwork in a supportive environment. Our faculty work closely with residents who develop clinical autonomy through graduated responsibility. Residents gain knowledge, skill and confidence in a setting that emphasizes hands-on experience by caring for a multicultural patient population with varying neurological illnesses.
We are professionally and personally diverse and have deep clinical and scientific experience. Faculty are committed leaders, mentors and teachers who enjoy working in a university setting that's vibrant and growing.
We are very happy to now have five residency positions per year. We are a categorical program, and all applicants who match in Neurology will also complete their medical internship in the superb Department of Internal Medicine at UNM.
The beautiful state of New Mexico is friendly, diverse and inclusive with phenomenal year-round access to outdoor pursuits and offers an affordable, laid-back lifestyle.
We are looking for applicants with passion and intellect who strive to be leaders, educators and mentors. If this sounds like you, please consider joining our thriving department and residency program.
