Faculty and Students of UNR MEd

Alumni honor the doctors who teach

For nearly 50 years, University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine faculty and community physicians have come together to educate medical learners – our students who go on to care for thousands of patients and make medical breakthroughs. Our students will save lives, not because we told them how, but because a physician showed them how. This Doctors’ Day, our alumni have made gifts to UNR Med to honor the physicians who made the difference in their medical educations. View our Doctors’ Day Honor Roll.
