The Case For And Against A UNLV Med School
The Case For And Against A UNLV Med School

Listen
AIR DATE: November 8, 2013

The Board of Regents for Nevada's universities is moving forward on a plan to build a medical school at UNLV. The new campus would be an extension of the medical school at the University of Nevada-Reno. A study commissioned by the Lincy Institute shows that a new medical school could bring as much as $900 million to the state by 2030. But opponents of the plan say a new medical school would create unnecessary competition with the medical school in Reno, and not necessarily produce the health professionals Nevada needs.

GUESTS

Dr. Mark Doubrava, regent, Nevada System of Higher Education

John Packham, director of health policy research, University of Nevada School of Medicine
