Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

UNM has a phenomenal academic culture with a great emphasis on education. Faculty are supportive, dedicated, passionate about teaching, and genuinely care about their residents. I enjoy having colleagues and fellow residents who are friendly, welcoming, and compassionate. We work together and support each other. This is truly a rewarding place to work!
