UNM Hospitals Specialty Pharmacy

When you have a lot of complicated medication, the UNM Specialty Pharmacy team will help you stay on track. Your pharmacists and care coordinators will:

  • Help you understand how your medications work
  • Discuss how we check if your medicine is working, and what the results mean
  • Teach you how to take and store your medications
  • Help you prepare for possible side effects or drug interactions (when one medication affects how well another one works)
  • Help you sign up for assistance programs, if needed
  • Teach you how to give yourself shots, if needed

The UNM Specialty Pharmacy is accredited by the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission for our commitment to quality. We are experts in complex conditions such as MS, cystic fibrosis, HIV and hepatitis. Your pharmacy team will communicate with your doctors through MyHealthUNM to make sure you get the medications you need.
