About

The health issues facing our local, state, and national governments are complex, and the solutions will require research, innovation, and collaboration from individuals and agencies representing the full spectrum of health and wellness.

UNLV's Division of Health Sciences — along with other health science-related programs in the Nevada System of Higher Education — is addressing today’s pressing needs and making tomorrow’s discoveries.

The division is comprised of the schools of Dental Medicine, Nursing, Community Health Sciences and Allied Health Sciences. Guided by a mission that demands UNLV serves its community, the division is using research, education, training, and service to form unique public and private partnerships. These partnerships are helping provide quality health care to the underserved, educating future professionals, and exploring ways to improve the health and well-being our citizens. Taken together, UNLV is helping build a foundation for a healthier and more vibrant Nevada.
