Primary Care Track

Department of Internal Medicine

Introduction

The University of Nevada, Reno is proud to announce the addition of a new primary care program since July 2017. The program will supplement an already vibrant categorical internal medicine program with focus on outpatient education. Primary care residents will rotate on the same inpatient teams and will be taught by the same faculty as the traditional track. However, the primary care track will have fewer inpatient rotations to allow for focus on ambulatory education. The ambulatory curriculum will aim to include didactics for board preparation in anticipation of high pass rate. The primary care track will help residents develop the leadership, communication and management skills required for a successful outpatient career after graduation.

Patient Population

Reno is the center of the Reno-Sparks Metropolitan Area—housing a large diverse, socioeconomic patient population. Its a primary health care hub for many small, rural neighboring cities offering exposure to tremendously diverse patient population in dire need of primary care physicians. In addition, the primary care track will provide exposure to rural medicine with rotation in Elko, NV at the Northern Nevada Regional Hospital.
