Medical Student Handbook
The Office of Admissions and Student Affairs maintains files for all School of Medicine students to document academic progress and promotion. The confidentiality and security of education records are of primary importance to the medical school and the university. The management of student records complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), and the University of Nevada, Reno Privacy Notice and Request for Confidential Status of Directory Information.
Student files include the following sections:
- General information
- Years 1 and 2 - grade reports
- Year 3 Clerkships - evaluation and grade reports
- Year 4 Electives - evaluation and grade reports
- Administrative action(s)
Students are encouraged to review their academic files regularly. Access to a student's file does not include the right to make copies of all or part of the file.
Local current student addresses and telephone numbers must be on file. It is the responsibility of the student to update said directory information regularly in MyNEVADA.
The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine has a number of uses for student records and a student's likeness/photographic image. Students are advised of rights under FERPA and should contact ASA should they request that the school not disclose directory information and/or likeness/photographic image. This request must be made in writing to the School, and sent to:
