ALBUQUERQUE – Three University of New Mexico School of Medicine students completed their first year in medical school this summer by helping Los Alamos residents with their health and wellness through mid-August at two sites in Los Alamos that include a family medicine clinic and medical center.
More than 100 first-year UNM medical students began their six-week rural rotation this month in 22-plus communities throughout New Mexico, from Las Vegas to Las Cruces; Gallup to Clovis.
As part of their nationally recognized curriculum, the students are talking with patients, conducting physical examinations with their preceptors, and performing a community project designed to address specific community health care and/or educational needs.
Through the UNM School of Medicine’s Practical Immersion Experience (PIE), medical students are placed in outlying primary care practices — predominantly family medicine practices, but also internal medicine practices and occasionally rural emergency rooms — to experience medical practice in New Mexico’s rural communities.
