SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – State lawmakers want to invest thousands into medical students in an effort to have them practice in underserved areas. House Bill 159 looks to pull $500,000 from the General Fund to give to UNM for the new program.

The program would prepare medical students to stay in New Mexico and practice in underserved communities in the state.
