The UNM School of Medicine is committed to improving health and health care in New Mexico by providing the best medical education, research and clinical care. This is made possible by the generosity of alumni and friends who believe in the school's mission and have invested in its future. As state appropriations decrease, private support is becoming even more critical in achieving the school's mission of providing cutting-edge research, innovative education and superior patient care to the people of this state.
The school has begun a scholarship drive to keep New Mexico's most talented students here in their home state for their medical education and training. Learn how you can contribute to this effort.
In order to encourage more physicians to practice in rural areas, the school has launched a combined BA/MD degree program. A collaboration with the UNM College of Arts and Sciences, the program reaches out to talented high school seniors committed to practicing medicine in New Mexico and will reserve for them a space in the medical school.
