New name

The School of Medicine has a new name, effective July 1, 2016. We are now the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. This transformation is just one part of the significant changes the school is undergoing. It is more than the addition of one word that reflects our increasing engagement with the University of Nevada, Reno and the Reno-Sparks area. It signals stunning and positive changes as we build a full clinical and research campus in Reno in collaboration with our hospital and community physician partners. Our new name is the result of interviews and surveys from more than 2,000 people, including students, residents, alumni, faculty members, patients, community physicians and leaders. We celebrate all that we have accomplished over 47 years of training thousands of physicians, scientists and medical professionals. It may contain just one more word, but the name University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine signifies a tremendous rededication to our purpose of serving our community and our vision of a healthy Nevada.
