Santa Fe Campus
Its paradoxical ruggedness, juxtaposed with the fragility of rarefied mountain air and sparse desert terrain, hones the intellect to discern the essential nature of things, a skill that is indispensable to a medical education founded upon a naturalistic outlook of the world.
In Santa Fe the high mountain desert offers days of year-round sunshine that alternate through seasons from crisp and clear, to hot and dry. Luminous skies and interminable mountain ranges surrounding the city of Santa Fe make access to outdoor sports enticing, while the arts, opera, and blend of indigenous ethnic cultures creates an intriguing social milieu that counterbalances the tranquility of the surrounding wilderness.
The relative smallness of Santa Fe (approximately 70,000 people) is perhaps the secret to its spectacular beauty—a city set apart from mainstream America. Likewise, its natural beauty is only enhanced by the rich cultural blend of Hispanic, Native American Indian, and Caucasian cultures. With the wilderness bordering the entire city, outdoor life sits at the city’s gate for either an active sports life or unobtrusive observation and contemplation. The lack of heavy industry serve to safe guard this powerful geographic area, and the popularity of Santa Fe as a tourist center contributes to the flourishing of its culture.
Without exaggeration, Santa Fe is one of the most magical places in the world. This uniqueness makes it a natural magnet for the finest artists, teachers, healthcare practitioners, students, and people searching for a certain quality of life.
