UNM Medical Residents Stay in State

July 30, 2021 – Thirteen of the University of New Mexico Medical School’s 15 recent family and community medicine residents will stay in the state, boosting long-slumping numbers of rural primary care doctors as they fan out to work in communities from Shiprock to Lovington. The medical school has been focusing on just such an outcome as a way to improve community health. Producer Matt Grubs speaks with a graduate of the program and two doctors who are trying to ensure continued success.
