The story of how a medical school in an impoverished state changed medical education nationally and world-wide.
Written as a labor of love, Dr. Dora was commissioned to commemorate the history of the medical school where she has served on the faculty since 1998. Containing over 300 photos, the book was published on the occasion of the school’s 50th anniversary.
“The Daily Practice of Compassion is a wonderful history of how a dedicated group of men and women conceived and built a new type of medical school − one where compassion for patients was an inherent value in the curriculum. The people of New Mexico are indeed fortunate to have such an institution in their midst.”
—Janet Napolitano, President, University of California
“What a delightful experience to revisit the past through the pages of this magnificent piece of work. Dora has truly captured the spirit of the founders, faculty and students who have made this an outstanding institution.”
—Diane Klepper, MD, UNM School of Medicine Professor Emerita
