February 9 Declared BCOM Day at The Roundhouse

Students, staff, and faculty from the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine visited the New Mexico State Capitol where both the Senate and the House passed a memorial to support the declaration of February 9 as “Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine Day at The Roundhouse.”

All 161 members of BCOM’s inaugural class made the trip to Santa Fe where they visited the executive office and met with state representatives. “The students got a chance to interact on a one-on-one basis with legislators and give them feedback on how New Mexico can attract other students and physicians to move here,” said BCOM Chief of Staff and Assistant Dean of Multicultural Inclusion Justin McHorse. “They advocated for loan repayment programs, tax credits, and other incentives that will entice physicians to stay in the state and practice medicine.”
