Developing Rural Residency Program – Alamogordo, NM
GCRMC is preparing to meet the needs of our community and of nation-wide medical education programs by establishing a Family Medicine Residency Program. We plan to offer residents experience in every healthcare environment with the exception of inpatient pediatrics and dermatology. Those opportunities will be available at nearby locations.
We offer a unique experience that is unlike that of a city environment. Primary care physicians need to hone their diagnostic skills because sub specialists are not as readily available. Residents should experience a very rich patient care experience that will push their independence as practitioners. Our acute and ambulatory Behavioral Medicine rotations will reinforce how clinical integration can synergize their practice of medicine while providing a very rich rotation full of clinical care challenges.
Alamogordo is a thriving, friendly, safe community nestled in a sunny, high desert basin which affords a warm, dry, comfortable year-round climate. Behind us, rise the Sacramento Mountains, home of the Lincoln National Forest and the southernmost ski area in the country. Before us stretches the expanse of the Tularosa Basin and White Sands National Monument, the world’s largest gypsum dune field.
