University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine Reviews
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that was built to help find a solution to the doctor shortage in Southern Nevada. UNLV School of Medicine has a strong mission to find students with roots in the state because they want students to live and work in Nevada after their training. UNLV is committed to helping make medical education affordable by offering four full years of tuition to the charter class, along with 40% through 2020. The innovative curriculum begins with students taking a 6-week course to become an EMT and then proceeding with systems-based classes. Students are also required to participate in community service as part of the curriculum.
Our vision is to create a world-class center of excellence and innovation for medical education, patient care, and research that prepares Nevada’s physicians with the most advanced knowledge, treatments, and technologies while serving the health care needs of our diverse urban community.
