News and Story Submissions

As storytellers, we're always looking for great content. If you have a UNR Med story idea, please send it our way via our Project Submissions Form.

If you're looking to reach a internal and external outlets with your news, we have a variety of ways you can do that:

Internal Outlets

Sometimes a story is best told to the people who know us best. Nevada Medicine Weekly is an e-newsletter sent each week to School of Medicine faculty and staff and partners. VISIX video boards, which are located throughout medical school campus buildings, and emails are also considered internal vehicles.

External Outlets

When a story makes sense for a broader audience, we're happy to circulate it externally. External news outlets include, Inside Nevada Medicine, a monthly e-newsletter and social media channels like FacebookInstagramLinkedIn and Twitter.

Specialty Outlets

Some programs create and distribute their own publications, including the Great Basin History of Medicine Program, the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs, the Office for Community Faculty, the Office of Graduate Medical Education, the Savitt Medical Library. Please contact these programs directly to request inclusion in their newsletters.
