Office for Community Faculty

Community based faculty are one of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine's most important assets. They share their knowledge, skills and abilities with our students in a wide variety of practice environments and more importantly give our students a holistic view of medicine. Over the years, students have come to depend on community faculty for that real-world perspective and faculty members act as mentors to students guiding them to successful careers as physicians.

It is our goal to build meaningful relationships between community faculty and the School of Medicine. We encourage faculty to nurture professional relationships with students to further their education and enhance the institution. The role of a community faculty member is to support and advance the medical practice opportunities at the School of Medicine.

The education program at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine reflects the depth and breadth of these community-based partnerships. From their own patient exam rooms to the lecture halls of the medical school, community faculty provide unique learning opportunities for our students throughout their four years of medical school and into graduate medical education with our residents.
