The New Mexico Primary Care Training Consortium (NMPCTC) brings together the four Family Medicine Residency Programs in New Mexico. NMPCTC serves as a united front in statewide primary care training, advocacy, administration and development. Its overarching goal is to recruit and train family medicine residents to practice in New Mexico, and for the residents to be gainfully employed at the clinic or hospital of their choice, upon successful completion of their residency training program. The Southwest Center for Health Innovation (CHI) assists NMPCTC with medical student and resident recruitment/marketing, program training enhancement, and residency training program development in rural communities. The value, quality and opportunities that each New Mexico FMRP provides to its residents is unique. NMPCTC recognizes the uniqueness of each program while aiming to enhance the overall quality of residency training in the state.
The Family Medicine physician fills a special role in medicine: meeting the challenge of bridging economic, cultural and language barriers so as to provide accessible, appropriate and quality care.
