As the future of health care continues to change, educational institutions must continue to assess the way we educate and prepare future health care leaders. The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine has decided to conduct a comprehensive review of our pathway programs’ objectives, curriculum and outcomes.
After much consideration, we have decided this comprehensive review requires that we put the BS-MD Pathway Program on pause. As a result, we will not accept applications, nor will we matriculate a BS-MD class for the 2022-23 academic year.
To support incoming pre-med freshman, the School of Medicine will host a Pre-Med Resource Event and Fair this spring on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. High school students are encouraged to complete a brief Pre-Med Interest Form to receive an invitation to this and future pre-med events.
In addition, a digital Pre-Med Resource Guide developed by a current UNR Med medical student and University of Nevada, Reno alumnus is available to provide valuable information about UNR advising and programs, as well as online and national resources available to undergraduate pre-med students.
For questions, or to provide feedback or suggestions as we review and assess the BS-MD Pathway Program, please contact the UNR Med admissions team at OfficeOfAdmissions@med.unr.edu.
