It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to the Department of Surgery at the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV. It is the mission of the Department to continue a path of excellence in clinical practice, education and research. As Chairman, I am proud of our Faculty, which serves as the backbone of the Department. With over 60 full-time and clinical faculty spanning 10 divisions, our surgeons provide a variety of clinical services to the Las Vegas community, which in turn generates a wealth of clinical experience across specialties for the education of our residents, fellows and students. The atmosphere at the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV is one of excitement as the Department continues to grow and expand its training, educational, clinical and research programs.
