Medical Education

To expand medical education in Southern Nevada will require a major academic facility, likely built on the UMC campus,  that has all the teaching and research facilities you would expect to see in a full medical school, including an auditorium, conference rooms, research and anatomy teaching laboratories, and library facilities.  There is nothing like this in Las Vegas now but major efforts are underway to plan this expansion.   The two main advantages in this approach are the ability for both campuses to easily collaborate in teaching and research, and the cost efficiency of having a single statewide leadership structure, with local campus administrative autonomy.
