A Message from our Chair

The internal medicine department is an integral part of the Reno community which also reaches out to rural Nevada, by seeing patients and teaching medical students, residents and fellows. The department has strong ties and a new vision with Renown Health and the Renown Medical Group as our partners in education and patient care. The Reno Veterans Administration Hospital has been an academic partner for more than 30 years, providing invaluable training and education. The department has a strong foundation in general internal medicine with specialty services that are critical to our community. The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine has a strong basic science department with increasing opportunity for collaboration in areas of research. In addition, local community physicians provide a wealth of educational opportunities for our learners. Our goal is to bring all of these elements together and collaborate towards a healthy Nevada by providing excellent patient care and by training the future physicians of our state.
