The majority of students graduating from the University of Nevada School of Medicine next month will move on to GME programs in other states, which does not bode well for the state’s future supply of physicians.
 
Of the 69 graduates, only seven will stay in Nevada for their residencies. The state has a total of 113 residency positions in 12 specialties. About of a third of the graduates leaving the state are heading to programs not offered in Nevada, such as dermatology and neurology. The Nevada State Medical Association is lobbying lawmakers for $10 million to fund additional residency programs.
