We welcome you to learn more about the most established internal medicine training program in Las Vegas, Nevada. The former University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Las Vegas Internal Medicine Residency Program started in 1979. The training program is highly successful in developing proficient physicians who embrace their role and the duty to put their patients first. The medium size of our program fosters a supportive learning environment with frequent direct interaction with faculty. Collegiality amongst the residents, fellows, and faculty is one of our major strengths. Our residents have the opportunity to work directly under the supervision of our fellows in cardiology, critical care medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, and pulmonary critical care medicine.
Training in the state-of-the-art simulation center enhances the resident experience by practicing procedures and participating in simulated codes using a high-fidelity simulator. We also incorporate the use of standardized patients to advance communication skills.
We were accredited for 10 years by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) at our most recent site visit.
Las Vegas is truly a fabulous city with more depth than one imagines based on first impressions. In addition to robust dining and its status as an entertainment capital, residents are able to enjoy the great outdoors in a growing medical environment. Read more about living in Las Vegas.
