Welcome from the Associate Dean

Office of Student Affairs

Cherie A. Singer, Ph.D.


The Office of Admissions and Student Affairs coordinates the admission process and oversees a wide array of events and student services that enhance and support student experiences at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. We are here to help you as you work to achieve your goal of a career in medicine.

You are encouraged to use our extensive services to assist you as progress through medical school. We offer comprehensive advising, academic services, student wellness, counseling and referral to academic and counseling resources as needed. We also have student interest groups and organizations, and provide the opportunity for students to participate in outreach efforts for the school. Our website contains information on these services and programs. However, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team and to me individually. We welcome student questions, comments and input.

I encourage you to become familiar with the Student Handbook, which is comprehensive resource of information for medical students. It is available online, along with all policies that impact students.

These years in medical school will shape you and your friendships in ways which are still to be discovered. These will be some of your most memorable years and you will leave here changed and ready to become a full-fledged member of the profession of medicine. Our office will be with you at each step of your journey to your medical degree, and beyond, as you become valued alumni of the School of Medicine.
