UNR Physician Assistant (PA) Program
UNR Physician Assistant (PA) Program

Brian S. Lauf, MPAS, PA-C, DFAAPA is the founding Program Director, Physician Assistant Studies Program and Assistant Professor, Department of Family and Community Medicine.  His mission is enhancing health care access and improving the health and well-being of all Nevadans through education.

Brian grew up in Reno and his professional career in medicine launched when he became an EKG technician at the Reno VA hospital. Shortly thereafter he joined the United States Air Force becoming a medic where he was introduced to the PA profession—and an immediate and influential change in his future was born! Being part of the inaugural class at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), in Portland, Oregon shaped his career as a PA. After graduation and returning to Nevada, he was fortunate to practice rural healthcare in a community that welcomed him as a PA alongside a seasoned rural physician. This rural community and physician solidified his PA education. Brian returned to education earning a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska. Once back in the Reno/Sparks area and after a brief period practicing in the specialty of Ear, Nose and Throat, he returned to Family Medicine/Urgent Care. 

With encouragement from friends and mentors, he gave the entrepreneurial life a shot in a health care technology startup company…this experience provided a unique perspective as he continued the practice of medicine.  Brian has enjoyed local and national PA leadership roles throughout his career. In his free time, he enjoys being a husband of an amazing wife and father of two wonderful children.
