Family physicians strive to make people whole by humanizing medicine and providing quality care. The University of Nevada School of Medicine Family Medicine Residency curriculum emphasizes the acquisition of skills and attitudes directed towards these goals. We adhere to the standards of the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education and the special requirements of the Residency Review Committee for Family Medicine, which mandate balanced experiences in medicine, surgery, reproductive care, behavioral science, the care of children and adolescents, orthopedics, sports medicine, procedural skills, practice management and information mastery. Our competency driven curriculum promotes compassionate patient care, acquisition of medical knowledge, practice based learning, communication and interpersonal skills, professionalism and responsiveness to the health care system. Elective time for special interests is provided during years two and three.
