Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

The pathology department at UNM is filled with supportive faculty that love to teach and help you develop into a proficient and respectful pathologist. The residents and attendings are, in my opinion, the greatest highlight of being a part of this program. The education and opportunities are immense and the program, overall, is constantly improving to be more dynamic for residents.
