The Lincy Institute Colloquium Series, No. 2


The Lincy Institute


The launch of the UNLV School of Medicine presented a unique opportunity for Southern Nevada to address two critical issues: the absence of adequate healthcare services for a region of more than 2.2 million people, and the economic impact of a new medical school resulting in an expanded regional health care economy. A collaborative process that engages local, state, and private sector interests is essential to the development of the UNLV School of Medicine and the expansion of an effective, efficient, and profitable healthcare economy.

In this colloquium The Lincy Institute released new health policy publications prepared with the support of the UNLV School of Medicine, and hosted representatives of Tripp Umbach, the nation’s leading consultant on community health needs assessments, economic impact studies, feasibility studies, economic development, and strategic planning. Tripp Umbach presented options for funding and financing the construction of medical school facilities and was joined by UNLV faculty members who presented research and policy analyses focused on the growth and sustainability of the UNLV School of Medicine.
