Nevada's statewide public medical school is proud to have significant resources for education, research, patient care and community involvement in Reno, Las Vegas and rural communities, but the school has its origins in Reno, known as the Biggest Little City in the World. With a population of more than 225,000, Reno is northern Nevada's largest city, yet one that offers a laid-back outdoorsy lifestyle garnished with generous portions of the arts, culture, history, entertainment and dining. For those who seek education or career opportunities in medicine, the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine and Reno offer an exciting place to start the adventure.
In the late 70s, the School of Medicine began training medical students at Southern Nevada Memorial Hospital in Las Vegas, now known as University Medical Center, after completion of a six-story medical education center on the west end of the hospital's campus. The majority of clinical education and patient care operations at the medical school are offered in Southern Nevada.
