Reflections from the Dean: Welcome Class of 2023

This month, it was our great honor to welcome the medical student Class of 2023 to UNR Med through MedFIT, which provides students the opportunity to meet their new classmates and mentors while preparing for the academically rigorous learning environment of a medical school.
MedFIT concluded with Family Day and our traditional white coat ceremony on Aug. 16. Not only were these events opportunities to celebrate the Class of 2023, but they were also an chance to extend a warm UNR Med welcome to the family, friends and supporters who have journeyed with these students and will continue to stand behind them and their dreams through the next four years and beyond.


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.
