Project Medical Education Nevada

PMEN Participants

Project Medical Education Nevada (PMEN) at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine is an interactive one day program designed specifically to give elected officials, policy makers and community leaders a first-hand look at medical education in Nevada. Our goal is to enhance participants' understanding of the complex system of medical education and experience what it takes to train the nation's future doctors.

During the program, participant have the opportunity to interact with faculty and staff members, medical students and residents of the School of Medicine. The program will include an overview of the School of Medicine, a simulated experience of being "admitted" to medical school, and then a variety of simulated experiences that provide insight as to what our medical students and residents do and learn to become fully trained. Participants will see how students and residents are taught, how they care for patients, how they learn clinical skills and will be able to meet with students, residents and faculty members personally. The mini-curriculum also includes information about the complex system of financing medical education, the role of a state medical school and relationships with community partners in educating and training doctors, conducting research, providing patient care, and caring for the uninsured.

PMEN is adapted from a program created by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
