The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Years 1 & 2 curricular structure is an integrated systems-based curriculum designed by our faculty and includes community-based preceptorships in both academic years.

Year 3 features clerkships in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, OB/GYN and Surgery.

Year 4 consists of predominantly of electives, and incorporates a required rural-based experience, which introduces the students to practicing medicine in small communities with limited resources and geographic challenges.

The School of Medicine offers opportunities for added distinction for our students through voluntary Scholarly Concentrations and dual degrees programs (M.D./Ph.D., M.D./MPH, M.D./MBA).

The School of Medicine maintains simulation centers at both the Reno and Las Vegas campuses. Students can interact with standardized patients, high-fidelity human patient simulators, and task trainers for specific procedural skills.
