Our 10th Anniversary

TUN 10th annivesary logoThis year is an especially exciting time for Touro as we begin our 10th anniversary celebration.  Touro has had a profound impact on the Southern Nevada community for the past 10 years.  We have graduated more than 600 physicians.  With the only Physician Assistant Studies program in the state of Nevada, we have graduated more than 300 PAs.     We offer the only Master of Occupational Therapy degree in the state.  We have a Doctor of Physical Therapy program, Doctor of Nursing program, Masters of Medical Health Sciences program, Bachelor of Nursing program and Master of Education program.  When Touro sees a need in the state of Nevada, we fill it.

Our students, faculty and staff donate their time to their community through amazing projects.  We recently launched a mobile healthcare unit that provides free healthcare to the homeless population in downtown Las Vegas and around the valley.  That clinic is an outreach of the Stallman Touro Clinic at The Shade Tree Shelter which has been providing free healthcare to the women and children at the shelter.   We donate hundreds of hours of volunteer time to provide free health screenings at community events.

Our multi-specialty Health Center at Touro is open to the community, accepts most major insurance and has outstanding physicians who specialize in primary care, rheumatology, geriatrics and osteopathic manipulative medicine.

In 2008, Touro University Nevada saw a need that was going unmet in the State of Nevada – providing comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for our community’s children with developmental disabilities. In establishing the Touro University Nevada Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities our goal has been and continues to be to further expand the availability of services and outreach for these children.

As we go in to our 10th anniversary, we have many exciting events planned to celebrate our students, faculty, staff, preceptors, businesses and the community that has supported us.   We hope you will be able to attend these events to show your support of this wonderful, non-profit university that has already impacted the lives of so many Nevadans.

The Touro campus today continues to be a dynamic and exciting place with great promise for future growth and expansion.  I look forward to a wonderful year ahead.
