Cleveland Clinic, University of Nevada, Las Vegas discuss expanding partnership

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas may expand its partnership with Cleveland Clinic to incorporate additional opportunities for students of the university's new medical school, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Officials said discussions between the two organizations are ongoing and no definitive plans for an updated partnership have been made.

Barbara Atkinson, MD, dean of the new UNLV School of Medicine, said the expanded partnership may allow UNLV medical students to rotate through Cleveland Clinic's neurology program, according to the report.

UNLV and Cleveland Clinic previously partnered on a biomedical research initiative to learn more about Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease in 2015.

"The Cleveland Clinic is a strong longtime partner and we're excited to explore opportunities to extend our research and education collaboration with them in a variety of areas," Len Jessup, PhD, president of UNLV said in a statement obtained by the Review-Journal. "For years, we've been working hard together with the Cleveland Clinic to solve complex challenges affecting human health — from grant-funded Alzheimer's research to an innovative master's in healthcare interior design — and we look forward to forging new connections with our School of Medicine that will make our community healthier."

UNLV's School of Medicine will officially open in July.
