Program Works to Show Medical Residents Community Support to Encourage Them to Choose Southern Nevada as Home

This is an idea that has been two years in the making. It’s no secret that Nevada has a severe shortage of doctors. But we plan on changing that. Our vision is to create a supportive community for resident physicians in Las Vegas by fostering meaningful relationships, a healthy work-life balance, and career development, with the ultimate goal of attracting and retaining a greater number of quality physicians.

Over the last handful of months Las Vegas HEALS has worked closely with multiple residency programs in the Valley to get a better understanding of the shortfalls, as well as the benefits, of practicing medicine in Las Vegas, with the intent to expand on the good and lessen the bad. We have capped off each month with a “thank you” party for residents to show that the community supports them and that we would love for them to choose our city to call home. We’ve done activities like go kart racing, axe throwing, and Golden Knights watch parties to name a few. Learn more in the downloadable PDF below:
