Erin Corriveau, M.D, Receives Appointment to U.S.

Dr. Erin Corriveau, M.D., senior resident in the UNM Health Sciences Center Family and Community Medicine Department, recently became the first UNM medical resident to receive an appointment to the U.S. Council on Graduate Medical Education (COGME).

The 17-member board is appointed by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The group provides the Secretary and Congress with ongoing assessments of physician workforce trends, training issues and financing policies, and recommends appropriate federal and private sector efforts on these issues. It's extraordinary that a medical resident was chosen for this position and a first for the UNM Health Sciences Center and New Mexico.
