The University of Nevada School of Medicine has announced two strategic partnerships, encompassing both northern and southern Nevada, which together will dramatically increase the number of physicians who train and stay in Nevada. These wide-ranging plans with Renown Health in Reno and MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas include expansion of the School of Medicine to a full four-year campus in Reno and new residency (graduate medical education) programs statewide. In Reno, new School of Medicine-Renown joint leadership positions in pediatrics and neurology will enhance capacity for specialized care. Community physicians will support full clinical teaching for third- and fourth-year medical students. In Las Vegas, MountainView Hospital has committed to becoming a partner in developing new residency and fellowship training programs that will address Nevada's critical need for physicians.
