The goal of the School of Medicine is to graduate students who are knowledgeable, caring, skillful, responsible physicians capable of entering any specialty training program and delivering high quality health care to the individual, the family and the community.
The School of Medicine offers a fully-accredited allopathic program leading to an MD. Beginning in the late 1960s, the school has graduated nearly 1,500 physicians who practice medicine throughout Nevada and the United States. Nevada's innovative curriculum and statewide campuses give students extensive hands-on patient care, cutting-edge science education and the skills to be future physicians. Complete curriculum information can be found here.
The School of Medicine is a statewide program, offering clinical services and education in Reno, Las Vegas, Elko, and other rural communities. Students spend the first two years on the school's main campus in Reno. Beginning in Year III, students can choose to complete their clinical training on the Las Vegas Clinical Campus, or combine training in Reno and Las Vegas. Students graduate from Nevada having learned medicine in all the possible practice locations. This helps students make good decisions about residency programs and specialty choices.
Once students complete the MD program, they are prepared to enter residency training. Nevada students have attended in residency training in all specialty areas and around the country. Learn more about residency training.
