Fast Facts About the Campaign
- The College of Medicine (COM) is headquartered at Roseman’s Summerlin Campus, in the Ralph and Betty Engelstad Cancer Research Building. It is hoped that more COM activities, including patient care will be able to take place in the Breakthrough Building, will take place in the future. This campus is well positioned among our aging populations and in proximity to many of our healthcare partners. It is also a beautiful, inspiring, and safe place to learn, discover and work. Our students will also be deployed into our community, learning the nuances of care in the unique populations of our neighborhoods.
- The charter class is anticipated to be 64 students.
- Roseman’s medical students will be engaged in the LENS program, and learn from the Southern Nevada community through neighborhood physician offices and health care clinics. Each student will be connected to a single clinic for the first three years of his/her educational experience, thereby getting to know the patients in the clinic, as well as the community surrounding the clinic. Roseman students will learn the challenges and opportunities available to the residents in the community and gain insight into concerning public health issues. They will collaborate with community and health leaders to recommend courses of action to improve the targeted issues, thus improving the health of the individuals and the community.
- Partnerships with nonprofit organizations, healthcare providers and primary care physicians will further enable Roseman medical students to serve the community and residents in need. This component of our curriculum emphasizes the importance of our community in the learning of our medical students.
