In honor and recognition of Thomas L. Schwenk, M.D., dean of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine (UNR Med) and Vice President for Health Sciences, and his 10 years of exceptional leadership at the School of Medicine, we invite you to make a gift of gratitude to the Jane K. and Thomas L. Schwenk, M.D. Faculty Leadership Development Award.
Tom and his wife, Jane, established this award in 2019 to encourage and foster leadership development for outstanding mid-career faculty in academic medical education. It is designed to provide an opportunity for emerging leaders to improve their understanding and effectiveness of leadership attributes and roles in the medical school enterprise, university, community, and professional organizations.
Dr. Schwenk has given so much to UNR Med students, faculty and staff, as well as the university, community and state during his tenure. Now, we have the opportunity to say thank you and express our gratitude of his commitment and contributions to achieving a vision for A Healthy Nevada over the past decade.
Dr. Schwenk’s service as Dean of the School of Medicine and Vice President for Health Sciences may best be summarized by University of Nevada, Reno President Brian Sandoval:
"Dr. Schwenk has been an historic and transformational figure during his tenure as dean of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. For a decade, he has proven to be exactly what the school needed – a strong leader who has made Nevada healthier through incredibly well-trained professionals, innovative programming and curriculum, cutting-edge research and innovation that has been recognized on a worldwide scale, and engagement and partnership that have brought the communities and health care organizations of Nevada closer together. As sweeping as his vision has been, he has never lost sight of the humanistic values that make a great doctor. Integrity, always doing the right thing, and caring for people have always been at the core of who Tom is. He leaves a profound legacy, not the least of which is a school of medicine that has been elevated through his leadership and is well positioned to meet Nevada’s needs in the future.”
