Happy 50th Anniversary, UNR Med!

For the past year, the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine has celebrated its Unrivaled History and Unlimited Future. From March 25, 1969, when Gov. Paul Laxalt signed legislation establishing the University of Nevada School of Medicine, to March 25, 2019, when the City of Reno declared University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Day, we have had a lot to celebrate.

2019 AAMC Western Regional Conference

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.
