Please give us 2 days to respond.
Where is the course held?
The course is held on the UNLV School of Dental Medicine campus, located at 1001 Shadow Lane. On the first day of the course, please go to the ‘B’ building entrance on Shadow Lane.
Where should I park?
Parking is free for course participants. Upon registration and prior to the event, an email with directions of where to park will be provided. If a permit is required, we will alert you when you show up on the first day.
Does the course provide housing?
No. You must find your own accommodations for the course. We recommend using a website such as hotels.com or travelocity.com to find a hotel nearby that fits your budget.
Does the course provide transportation?
No. You must find your own transportation to and from Las Vegas, as well as to and from the course.
What should I wear?
On Friday, we will be in the lecture rooms all day, so you may wear business casual.
On Saturday, we will be in the simulation lab. Long socks and closed-toed shoes are required for all participants. We highly recommend you wear scrubs. If you are unable to wear scrubs, you may wear regular clothing (no shorts, no tank tops, no bare midriffs) and a surgical gown when you are in the simulation lab (surgical gown will be provided).
What is the schedule like?
Specific times will be provided to you prior to the start of the course; however, the general schedule is as follows:
Do I need to bring any supplies?
No. Everything you need to participate in the simulation course will be provided for you.
Do I need to bring my own lunch?
No. The course provides you with breakfast and lunch both days. Please let us know if you have any food restrictions. Feel free to bring your own snacks, just please respect our rules. (see next question)
Can I bring water and a snack into the simulation lab?
No. Our simulation lab is subject to federal laws banning all food and beverage in pre-clinical and clinical areas (even if they are in your bag). You may leave your food and beverage items on the shelves in the nearby study rooms. In the regular classrooms, food and beverages are allowed.
Can my spouse come along?
If your spouse or significant other has also traveled to Las Vegas, we ask that they do not attend the course with you. There are plenty of things in Vegas for them to do while you are participating. If you have an individual question about this topic, please email us.
Will I get to talk to the Dean of Admissions?
On the Friday of your course, we offer a thorough 45-minute group overview by the Dean of Admissions where you are free to ask as many questions as you can think of. Many individuals have the same questions, so your questions will help the entire group.
