His friendly, professional bedside manner makes him a favorite of our patients and their families.

Alunday obtained his MD from the University of Cincinnati in 2008. He completed his emergency medicine residency at Washington University in St. Louis in 2012, and completed a neurocritical care fellowship in 2014 at the same institution before coming to UNM.
