Dean’s Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine. As the 21st osteopathic medical school in the country, we are proud of our students and our accomplishments. Our students are different and unique, but all share a common bond of intellectual excellence, motivation to a career in health care, high moral and ethical standards, and an interest in osteopathic principles, philosophy and practice.

Our school is now the provider of the greatest number of medical graduates in the state of Nevada, and we are positioned to make a positive difference in the health care of Nevada and the country by providing the educational resources and environment for each student to grow academically, professionally and personally. As a relatively new school, our students are involved in the change and growth of our program and its excellence. New graduates reflect on our process and success in education, and will help us in our continuing effort for improvement.

Touro University Nevada has cultivated an open door and friendly environment to support the educational growth of our students. Our faculty continually strives to update and improve our curriculum and teaching methodologies, along with assessment tools. Our curriculum involves classroom didactics; problem based small group learning sessions, interactive classroom technology, small group tutorials, and structured self-study modules. Our purpose is to make learning not only timely, effective and efficient, but also enjoyable.

I again welcome you to our school and hope you will find here a program that meets your interests and future goals in osteopathic medicine.
