Friends and Colleagues,

They are among the individuals shaping the education of future physicians of Nevada -- the community faculty physicians who volunteer their time at the UNLV School of Medicine. Whether it’s providing guidance to residents in the clinical setting, supervising medical student rotations, teaching in our classrooms or performing important scientific research, our community faculty contribute immensely to our mission of delivering high-quality innovative education, research and superb clinical care to meet the health care needs of the growing and diverse population of Nevada. In today’s newsletter, we learn more about this volunteerism and introduce a trio of community faculty physicians who are making a vital contribution both to the medical school and to healthcare in Southern Nevada.
