Letter from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Neurology Residency at the University of New Mexico.

Your choice of residency program will shape the rest of your career. As you enter into the residency application process I encourage you to think about the type of environment that helps you succeed and to find a program that best matches your needs.

At UNM you will find a residency that fosters a culture of inquiry, excellence and respect in a bustling university hospital in a unique southwestern city.

We are committed to providing superb training through collaboration and teamwork in a supportive environment. Faculty work closely with residents who develop clinical autonomy through graduated responsibility. Hands on experience in varied clinical settings with a multicultural patient population with every type of neurological illness provides a unique opportunity to gain knowledge, skill and confidence.

We are professionally and personally diverse and have deep clinical and scientific experience. Faculty are committed leaders, mentors and teachers who enjoy working in a university setting that is vibrant and growing.

We are very happy to now have 5 residency positions per year, increasing the program size from 12 to 15 residents. We are a categorical program, all applicants who match in Neurology will also complete their Medical Internship in the superb Department of Internal Medicine at UNM.

The beautiful state of New Mexico is friendly and inclusive with superb weather, phenomenal year round access to outdoor pursuits and offers an affordable, easy lifestyle and diverse population.

We are looking for applicants with passion and intellect who strive to be leaders, educators and mentors. If this sounds like you, please consider joining our thriving department and residency program.
