Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM: The most attractive thing about this program to me is the people in it. They were the friendliest, most welcoming, most unique department I interviewed with. Everyone left a great impression, and it was the one place I felt I fit in perfectly. The program was also truly outstanding, with a great integration of digital pathology, world-class forensic pathology and hematopathology, and the unique experience of working at the Tricore reference laboratory. The breadth of locations we get to rotate at gives us a great perspective on both private medicine, academic medicine, the VA, and the Office of the Medical Examiner. To find such a strong program with such diverse training, combined with a fantastic and fun group of people, is really spectacular.
