Helping Our Community

Comprised of the schools of Allied Health Sciences, Community Health Sciences, Dental Medicine, and Nursing, the Division of Health Sciences is developing academic, research, and community service programs to meet the health care needs of our constantly growing region.

Welcome

The health issues facing Southern Nevada are as complex as they are varied. The size and scope of these issues requires multifaceted and collaborative solutions. Recognizing the growing challenges, UNLV built upon its successful programs to create the Division of Health Sciences.
