Embracing innovation and inclusion to be the center of excellence in Primary Care and Primary Care Education for northern nevada.

Current Residents

Patient Care

UNR Med and Renown Health have partnered to achieve a shared vision of “A Healthy Nevada.” Together, we are enhancing the health of our community, region and state through expanded clinical care, research and medical education. In June 2021, with approval from the Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents, the Renown Health Board of Directors, Nevada Governor Sisolak and both houses of the Nevada legislature, we formalized a relationship that dates back to 1977.

Medical Education

Education and training of both students and residents is our department's core value. Recognizing that we are working with adult learners, our goal is to provide a safe environment to expand knowledge and skills. We encourage learners to "diagnose and manage common problems uncommonly well" while exploring individualized areas of interest.

Scholarly Activity

The development and dissemination of new knowledge is vital to family medicine, for both patient care and medical education. We support faculty, residents, and students pursuing individual areas of interest and encourage the publishing of this work.
