BA/MD students pursue one of three degree options for their undergraduate degree, all of which emphasize science and liberal arts coursework. The curriculum is designed to provide a strong foundation for practicing medicine with sensitivity to New Mexicans and their public health and medical needs. Health, Medicine, and Human Values (HMHV) is the BA/MD major offered exclusively to BA/MD students, but students may opt to complete any A&S major. The selected curriculum must be within the following BA/MD options:
Included in the customized curriculum for all students, will be the BA/MD Pre-Medical Core (45-61 hours total), five integrated HMHV seminars (3 credit hours each), three HMHV workshops (1-2 credit hours each) and participation in a HMHV summer community health practica (6 credit hours) in a New Mexico rural or medically-underserved community. All required courses must be successfully completed with a standard letter grade of a C or better.
