In 1989 the School of Medicine's Pathology Department established the Great Basin History of Medicine program to research and preserve the history of Health Sciences in Nevada. The program is composed of an oral history program, research, student essays and has published several books. The program, in conjunction with the Washoe County Medical Society, has a museum displaying medical artifacts and a library in the Pennington Medical Education building.
