Class of 2013 moves ahead to residency training

The 59 members of the Class of 2013 took to the stage at Lawlor Events Center on May 17, 2013 for the hooding ceremony to celebrate completion of their undergraduate medical education. Thomas L. Schwenk, M.D., vice president of the Division of Health Sciences and dean of the School of Medicine, served as the ceremony's keynote speaker. Of note, 25 graduates, or 42 percent, will enter primary care specialties including internal medicine, pediatrics and family medicine. Nationwide, and in especially in Nevada, there is a shortage of primary care physicians. List of 2013 match results.
