Welcome to The University of New Mexico Department of Pathology

Douglas P. Clark, M.D., Chair and Professor

Welcome to the University of New Mexico Department of Pathology. This is an exciting time for the future of pathology here in New Mexico and nationwide. New advances in the molecular characterization of disease and molecular diagnostics promise to improve disease prevention and treatment. Pathologists are ideally situated to translate basic science research discoveries to improve patient care and become the gatekeepers for personalized medicine.

At UNM our vibrant and collegial team of pathologists, scientists, trainees and staff reflects the multicultural population of New Mexico. We link diversity with excellence through outstanding programs in education, training, biomedical research and patient care. We are committed to serving New Mexico’s unique populations and cultures while also contributing substantially to solving national and global problems.
