UNR Med students presented gifts to volunteer community faculty.

UNR Med students presented gifts to volunteer community faculty to express their gratitude for making differences in their lives as well as the lives of patients and in our communities during an appreciation breakfast held Friday, April 27, hosted by the Office for Community Faculty.

Clinical community faculty recognized for enhancing student learning experiences and success of UNR Med

As a community-engaged medical school, clinical community faculty—local healthcare leaders who volunteer their time to train undergraduate and graduate medical learners— contribute significantly to UNR Med's success.

UNR Med's community-based medical education model incorporates clinical training in a community setting, exposing students to real patients in need of various medical specialties and subspecialties. Local healthcare professionals accept UNR Med students into their medical practices, professional networks and local community, while taking on the role of a preceptor for much of the curricula. Statewide, more than 1,200 clinical community faculty members illustrate their commitment to educating future physicians through their passion for teaching and sharing their time, talents and experience.
