Friends & Colleagues, 

Community faculty, namely the physicians who volunteer their time at the UNLV School of Medicine and provide guidance to students and residents in the clinical setting, are key to the success of the school of medicine.These physicians also teach in our classrooms and contribute to important clinical research. They contribute immensely to our mission of delivering high-quality innovative education, research and superb clinical care to meet the healthcare needs of the diverse and growing population of Nevada. In today’s newsletter, we learn more about such volunteerism and introduce two community faculty physicians who are among the individuals shaping the education of future physicians of Nevada. They are among the 400 community faculty physicians who are making a vital contribution both to the medical school and to healthcare in Southern Nevada.
