South Tahoe housing needed for UNR medical students

The University of Nevada School of Medicine is asking members of the South Lake Tahoe area to open their homes to medical students studying in the community this year.

Beginning in August, some members of the Class of 2011 will complete their four-week small community rotation requirement in South Lake Tahoe. The required program for graduation is run by the school’s Department of Interdisciplinary Medical Education which relies on the goodwill and generosity of community members to help house students during their four-week rotation.

The School of Medicine is committed to serving the health care needs of small communities which is why all medical students must complete a rotation in a community hospital prior to graduation.

Those interested in providing housing to medical students completing their four-week rotation in South Lake Tahoe may contact Jamie Anderson at (775) 682-7728. Residents providing students housing must offer them their own bedroom and bathroom as well as kitchen access. Rotations begin in August 2010 and conclude in May 2011.
