Gordon Ohning, M.D.
Dr. Gordon Ohning, a professor in the UNLV School of Medicine Department of Internal Medicine, was awarded a Top Doctor 2020 designation in the Gastroenterology classification by Health Care Quarterly magazine.
A former professor at UCLA who was also a prolific researcher with the CURE, Digestive Diseases Research Center there, Ohnig now is the UNLV Medicine Section Chief in Gastroenterology at University Medical Center.
Ohning said the opportunity to help create the new UNLV School of Medicine was too good to pass up.
“How many times do you get to build a new public medical school from the ground up?” he said. “I get to help make sure the proper protocols and systems are in place. That’s a tremendous opportunity.”
