Each June, UNR Med first-year medical students honor those who gift their bodies to the School of Medicine's anatomical donation program for medical research and education. On Friday, June 14, UNR Med students hosted relatives, loved ones and friends of deceased donors at Walton's Sierra Chapel to express deep gratitude and pay respects for body donations of the 2018-19 academic year's donors. Photo by Brin Reynolds/UNR Med

Teaching anatomy through tech and touchBy Thomas L. Schwenk, M.D.

Studying the structure of the human body is one of the most important courses for health care professionals.All physicians remember their first day in the anatomy lab. We enter the laboratory with anxiety, fear, wonder and awe.

The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine is celebrating 50 years of a proud pioneering tradition in progressive medical education. We have guided more than 2,000 students in their journeys to become physicians, researchers and medical professionals. We are a top choice for students who want a tailored medical school experience in an invigorating outdoors-oriented west coast setting. Students are drawn to our small class sizes, award-winning faculty members and well balanced work and school life.

Our curriculum extends far beyond the walls of our University, emphasizing a team-based approach to medical education that produces skilled and compassionate medical professionals. This means our students have the opportunity to work with expert physicians, biomedical researchers and healthcare professionals as they decide where their medical careers will take them.

We encourage you to explore our campus and when you're ready to apply, we're here for you every step of the way.
