HMS Family Medicine Residency Program (FMRP)
HMS Family Medicine Residency Program will be closing temporarily on the last business day of August, 2022.
Sadly this is the third family medicine residency in New Mexico to close in recent months due to hiring challenges evident nationwide in the healthcare industry. HMS, though they have been looking to hire permanent Family Medicine Board Certified physicians, the nationwide search has not been successful. However, HMS intends to keep its accreditation status as an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Sponsoring Institution. This continued accreditation will provide HMS the opportunity to reestablish the residency program in the future, if the organization is able to recruit the needed faculty. The current residents will be relocating and will be departing potentially before the end of August as new positions are acquired by them. To Learn more Click Here
Nestled in the heart of the Gila Wilderness, the HMS Family Medicine Program is specifically designed in the “1+2” format to offer top quality training in the urban setting at Memorial Medical Center in Las Cruces, NM, during the intern year, followed by a two-year robust, rural community training experience in Silver City, NM
Hidalgo Medical Services, a federally-qualified health center with 20 years of experience as a frontier and rural training hub, welcomes two residents per academic year as a 2/2/2 program.
“HMS is recognized by HRSA as the first Teaching Health Center in New Mexico"
"At a time when the United States finds itself with an inadequate supply of physicians, the distribution of healthcare and access remains problematic. HMS has developed the HMS Family Medicine Residency Program in response to the primary care needs of our state and nation.”
