UNLV medical school creates another graduating class — PHOTOS

The Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV celebrated another graduating class Friday.

The class participated in a graduation and academic hooding ceremony at the university’s Thomas & Mack Center.

The school’s first graduating class occurred in 2021. The school was named after the late Kirk Kerkorian, a Las Vegas gaming pioneer known as the father of the Las Vegas megaresort.

Before the medical school opened, Las Vegas was the largest metropolitan area in the nation without a MD-granting medical school.
