Patient Care

Here at the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV, we are devoted to bringing the advantages of academic medicine to the Southern Nevada community. Our faculty physicians have joined the school from some of the most prestigious programs in the nation. These faculty can be found providing care to the community within the UNLV Health primary and specialty care clinics and within our community partner hospitals. They are also training our medical students, residents, and fellows, and are actively engaged in research that will improve the quality of life for Nevadans.

By bringing the principles of patient care, education, and research together, we are transforming healthcare in Southern Nevada.
