The Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV is focused on improving the lives of Southern Nevadans through academic medicine. By bringing education and training for future doctors together with the latest research, much of which is led by our faculty physicians, we are able to provide the highest quality patient care and community and patient services.
