Student Outreach Clinic

Uncategorized No Comments »

Dear CoEN Students, =

The Student Outreach Clinic is a free clinic operated by University of Nevada School of Medicine students under the guidance of licensed physicians. The clinic stands to provide quality healthcare for the uninsured and under-insured population of Northern Nevada while giving students hands-on training.

If you’re an engineering student interested in medical school, please consider applying to volunteer at the SOC. If selected, you will have the chance to shadow medical students, gain experience in a clinical setting and make a difference in the lives of fellow community members. Admission is competitive, as only 10 volunteers are selected each semester. You are encouraged to complete your application with care and submit it on time. The application and additional details about the clinic can be found at studentoutreachclinic.org. Applications are due by September 3rd.

Employment Opportunities with Admissions and Records

*Jobs/Internships* No Comments »

Admissions and Records is growing fast at UNR!  There are several immediate needs for assistance in registration and administrative tasks including an introduction to PeopleSoft and other systems.  In addition to the technical needs, we have a slew of new registration responsibilities (Post Requisite Checking, remedial no drops, etc.) that result in troubleshooting issues and processing.  Good student and department service is a must as we welcome our largest class ever.  We are potentially hiring some good help for counter, phones, and potentially much more for the right person.  We tend to “grow our own” and hire from within – plus it’s a good work environment and can be good career experience regardless.  Open to LOBs, casual hires, GAs, and student employees.
