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. But, recent talks between the school and county
commissioners has resulted in some heated debate and commissioners aren't
convinced UNR is totally committed to helping UMC improve. We'll talk with a
Clark County Commissioner and the former chancellor of higher education
about the relationship between UMC and UNR.
