Department of Family and Community Medicine

Committed to community outreach and fostering a supportive atmosphere around primary care.

Department Overview

Primary care physicians are some of the most sought after professionals, especially in underserved communities. Family physicians have the ability to be able to treat patients of all ages, sexes and any degree of disease or injury and have an amazing opportunity to treat a patient over their lifetime. We train Nevada's future physicians to make primary care doctors more available to everyone. By increasing the amount of primary care physicians, we can help reduce healthcare costs and improve the overall welfare of the state.

The Department of Family Medicine in Las Vegas is committed to providing outstanding patient care and medical education. Our team of award-winning faculty, knowledgeable residents and accomplished fellows cares about the health of everyone in the community.
