UNM BAMD Program

What is the general reputation of the combined BAMD program at University of New Mexico? I would appreciate any opinions, pros and cons, etc. Is it a rigorous program? In general, what do you think? Thanks!

All BA/MD programs are rigorous. Don’t worry about that.


Unless you are NM resident, you can forget about UNM’s BAMD program. It’s for state residents only.

The program’s focus is provide physicians for medically underserved areas of the state and to medically underserved populations. Because of this, preference is given to applicants who are from rural areas or who belong to minority communities, particularly Native Americans and Hispanics.

Well considering I am a small-town NM resident, that shouldn’t be an issue for me.
