The Savitt Medical Library is the academic medical library for the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. The library was founded in July 1978, after the medical school converted to a four-year, degree-granting program. It was named for Sol and Ella Savitt after their gift made support for the library and its collection possible. Previously it was known as the Life and Health Sciences Library and was housed in the Max C. Fleischmann College of Agriculture in 1958.
Student Outreach Clinic
One of the unique aspects of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine is that it has a student run clinic on campus that aims to serve uninsured or underinsured members in the Reno area community. The clinic offers a variety of basic medical care services such as flu shots, pap smears, blood pressure monitoring, and physicals, among others. This establishment is great practice for the future doctors of Nevada to get hands-on experience under the supervision of a licensed physician as well as an opportunity for those who may not have access to health care to be taken care of.
