Institutional Objectives for Medical Students

Medical Student Handbook: Academic Standards and Objectives

The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine has established Institutional Objectives for all medical students. These institutional objectives are an overall guide of what we expect our students to learn. All of our student courses, blocks, clerkships, and electives should be aligned with these objectives. The institutional objectives are:

  • Medical knowledge
  • Patient care
  • Practice-based learning
  • Interpersonal communication skills
  • Professionalism
