UNLV School of Medicine to assume control of 4 health centers

But as the budding UNLV School of Medicine prepares for its proposed July 2017 debut, the institution says it will take over four Clark County school-based health facilities with plans for innovation.

The medical school, which says it will assume control of the health centers run by the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, wants to focus on “prevention, primary care and behavioral health” at the facilities, according to a news release.

UNLV previously announced plans to assume control of the Reno school’s Las Vegas-based residency programs and much of the Southern Nevada staff over the next year as the Northern Nevada institution changes it focus.

Currently staffed by mostly second-year and some third-year pediatrics residents, the centers offer prescriptions, check-ups and samples of medication for health issues including asthma.

“We can actually make an acute difference along with overall preventative medicine,” said third-year resident Munira Rahman, who has worked in the clinics.

UNLV announces Fertitta family will donate $10M toward football facility

From the day Tony Sanchez was hired as UNLV coach, he’s said that building an on-campus football facility was essential to moving the program forward and having success.

Sanchez’s vision for that facility will soon be realized with the announcement Tuesday afternoon that the Fertitta family has pledged $10 million — the largest single gift in UNLV athletics history — toward the construction of a 73,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art training facility that will be known as the Fertitta Football Complex.

“I knew when I took this opportunity that this was a diamond in the rough, that this could be an incredible job in an amazing community, and it could help change the face of the university and this gift allows us to move towards that,” said Sanchez, who was hired by UNLV in December 2014 after building Bishop Gorman into a national prep football power.

The two-level complex will be built in the north end of the team’s practice area at Rebel Park, which is located between the UNLV baseball park, Wilson Stadium, and the Fertitta Tennis Complex.

New med school, football complex part of a changing UNLV, Jessup says in annual speech

The school just received a $10 million gift from the Fertitta family to build a football training facility, it's rolling out a new medical school and preparing to host the final presidential debate in October, and just today college officials were handed a victory when tourism officials voted in favor of a proposed $1.9 billion stadium that UNLV would share with the Oakland Raiders.

UNLV is also wrapping up construction on an addition to the Thomas & Mack Center, is awaiting the completion of a new hotel college building around this time next year and just welcomed its largest-ever freshman class.

"This university is going through significant change," Jessup said. "We're a very special university in a very special place."

He said UNLV was on track to finally become a "school of choice" by 2026, when his 10-year plan to achieve "elite" status will have been completely rolled out.

By then, he added, UNLV will have grown to an enrollment of around 40,000 undergrads and will have the infrastructure to compete for a slot in a Power Five athletic conference.

UNLV Medical School wins preliminary accreditation, clearing way for first class

It’s official: UNLV’s burgeoning medical school has been granted preliminary accreditation, allowing the institution to begin recruiting and accepting students for its first class in 2017.

University officials received the good news Tuesday from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, which accredits medical degree-granting institutions in the United States and Canada. In addition to announcing the decision, they released a preliminary rendering of the school’s planned academic building.

The accreditation decision eliminates one of the final regulatory barriers to the medical school’s debut and allows admissions officials to move forward with student recruitment for the UNLV School of Medicine’s charter class of students, who are expected to begin courses July 17.

It also clears the way for the UNLV School of Medicine to become the first accredited allopathic medical school capable of granting MD degrees in Southern Nevada.

Proposed budget signals $115M in new investment for Nevada higher education

evada Gov. Brian Sandoval, in his Tuesday night State of the State address, referred to the $115 million in new investment for the Nevada System of Higher Education as “strategic.”

Sandoval’s proposed budget would give UNLV the bulk of the money — $37.4 million — directed toward increasing student enrollment as the state prepares for a growing population and economy. The University of Nevada, Reno would receive $21.3 million for this purpose, and $21.4 million would be directed toward the state’s four community colleges for career and technical education.

In addition, Sandoval’s proposed budget calls for funding UNLV’s School of Medicine beyond its start-up costs, which it received in the 2015 legislative session. The proposal also would provide funding for capacity building projects at all teaching institutions and the Desert Research Institute, as well as, capital improvement projects, including the completion of UNLV’s hotel college, a new engineering building at UNR and deferred maintenance projects.
