I’ve had years of problems with the medical
school in Reno. It was the nightmare of my tenure as chancellor. But
the solution to its problems is not to build a second medical school at
UNLV. That doesn’t mean that UNLV
should never have a medical school. But until it can raise a half a
billion dollars from sources other than the state, it had better stay
out of a game in which it’s not capable of competing.
