Moheb Moneim Endowed Professorship

The UNM Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation is pleased to announce the Moheb Moneim Endowed Professorship for Orthopaedic Surgery. When fully funded at $500,000, this endowment will create an inexhaustible source of funding for the department and a permanent tribute to Dr. Moneim’s impact on the School of Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation programs.

A renowned hand surgeon, Dr. Moneim joined the UNM Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation in 1976. Dr. Moneim served as director of the orthopaedic residency program from 1990 to 2005 and director of the hand fellowship program since 1985. He served as department chair from 1990 to 2006. As an emeritus professor and now a working retiree, Dr. Moneim continues to serve as the Hand Surgery Fellowship Program Director, conduct research, teach, and care for patients.

How to Make a Gift

Many people choose to make a payroll deduction gift through the UNM Foundation. You help meet the University’s participation goals, and 100% of your gift will go to the fund you designate. You may also want to consider making a larger commitment and paying that pledge over several years. The School of Medicine Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation is happy to work with you to set up a pledge.
