Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health
Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health has been selected to receive a $500,000 donation from The Engelstad Foundation to support its Graduate Medical Education (GME) Program.
This is the second gift The Engelstad Foundation has made to the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health’s GME program, marking a total contribution of $1 million. The funds will be used to support training for eight post-graduate neurology and neuropsychology fellows.
“Given that 70% of physicians practice medicine within the community where they completed their GME, we believe the most efficient way to bring top-tier talent to southern Nevada is to offer high-demand medical education programs,” said Dylan Wint, M.D., NV Energy Chair for Brain Health Education at the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. “I am grateful for this generous gift from The Engelstad Foundation as it allows us to do just that. It is wonderful to have a community partner that shares a passion for expanding health education opportunities, and is committed to increasing the medical talent in the Las Vegas community.”
