Immunizations are an important part of medical student requirements, to protect the health of their patient and to maintain their own wellness. Regular immunizations and documents are a requirement for all medical students at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. Keeping immunization records up to date are an important part of the professionalism required of all students at the school.
Prior to matriculation all students must complete the immunizations set forth by AAMC by June 1 of the year of matriculation.
