A Message from the School
As our charter class prepares for graduation on May 7, 2021, we celebrate their many contributions to the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV and the Las Vegas community. These pioneers were among the 909 applicants and 293 who received interviews, who were finally selected, and accepted admission to UNLV. As members of the charter class, these individuals have been instrumental in our journey to full accreditation which was announced on February 19, 2021. They established many of the student organizations and student government, participated in four years of community engagement and service, engaged in research, completed their clerkships, supported the school, and the community during the aftermath of the 1 October mass shooting, and the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Regardless of birthplace, the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV charter class is and will always be Battle Born.
