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.
