Celebrating 50 Years

Unrivaled history. Unlimited future.


Since 1969, the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine has prepared more than 2,000 graduates to lead the way to better health for our state, nation and world. It comes as no surprise that so many have embraced what Nevada's longest serving medical school has to offer.

We pride ourselves on statewide outreach with a local touch, providing patient care and clinical training in Reno and throughout our rural communities. And the research we're generating in our own backyard is changing and saving lives around the world.

On March 25, 2019 the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine will turn 50. However, we're not waiting to get this party started. Our year-long celebration commenced at Hooding 2018 and will conclude at Hooding 2019.

Join the Celebration!
