The Right Plan
The fundamental issue facing public medical education in Nevada is how to better serve the state, and in particular Las Vegas, in improving the quality of its health care, and increasing the number and breadth of physicians who train and practice in the state. For my money – and my wife Beverly and I have pledged our support to this critical project – the current Dean Tom Schwenk has the right plan. He proposes that we develop full four-year campuses in both Reno and Las Vegas rather than the split programs that we have had for the last forty years. We will explore this idea in the coming days.
