UNM’s School of Medicine PIE Program is a six-week clinical experience at the end of the first year in medical school. During PIE, students work in rural communities caring for patients and evaluating their problems as a springboard for studying the sciences basic to medicine. Students also have the opportunity to view medicine from a community perspective and to experience the lifestyle of the community physician.
