UNR and UMC

As the Clark County Commission struggles with how to turn around the fiscally struggling UMC, one idea that's come up is making the hospital a world class teaching institute. To do that, the commission wants a greater commitment from the state's medical school, which is located at the University of Nevada, Reno.
