Academic Standards

Medical Student Handbook: Academic Standards and Objectives

Students are governed by the rules and regulations of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), and the University of Nevada, Reno Administrative Manual. Therefore, students are responsible for familiarization with the regulations that affect them. For further information, see the NSHE Code and medical school practices. This handbook contains only basic information; not all rules and regulations have been listed in their entirety. Standards are set by the faculty, and decisions regarding achievement of standards will be determined by the faculty, the SPCC, and the School of Medicine Dean.
