The School of Medicine has statewide outreach with a local touch providing patient care, health services, and training physicians in Reno, Nevada and in the state’s rural communities. We seek to create an environment that serves all who enter our doors, from the physicians who teach our learners to our employees and patients, whose health we seek to improve.
